Growing peppers for the first time, any tips? When to plant out? (I live in Berkshire) do they usually do better outside or in the greenhouse? Fertilising? Thanks x

Thinking to move them to individual pots in 7 days or so!

#advice I would say yes to planting individually but I’d wait a bit longer before putting outside 👍🏼

@bluefox23 Absolutely I’ll wait longer, just wondering if end of April would be the right time, but I suppose it all depends on weather so it’s a hard one to decide at this point..

I keep mine indoors as I've found one bad night can ruin them (I'm in Liverpool). But I try and put them outside in the day once they're flowering so the bees can get to them. Regards repotting I say do it once they're really pot bound. I'd say these are ready for individual pots, maybe 8cm ones, then upgrade when there's roots poking out the bottom. What chilli's are they?

@dantolomeo Thanks for the advice, it’s bell peppers and chilli peppers. They are now growing nicely in individual pots 🤞
