Last year I had no trouble starting bottle gourds but this year nothing seems to want to start. Made cuts on seed coat and soaked while keeping warm, nothing. seeds were bought from a reputable source. Any suggestions?

My advice to you is while you're being patient, waiting for those seeds to sprout, -- buy more seed.

You will find a few seed dealers in this website...
