I'd leave them indoors for a bit longer. Nights can still be a bit chilli - get the joke 🤣🤣🤣

I am a bit disappointed 😞 about mine Mark, I have been using a solar heated mat underneath them as I know they like warmth. I did use jiffy pellets instead of seed compost so wondering if it’s them 🤔. Will see if I can get some seed compost and try again @solly1961 🌶

Don't be disappointed. Both my peppers and aubergines failed the 1st time last year. Plenty of time to try again @debs69

Bless you 🌶 I won’t give up 😉 @charlotte I really thought the heat pad would help. I usually put them on my bathroom windowsill . Will try more over the weekend.

You would think the heat pad would help as I think mine failed last year because it was too cold. @debs69 .

Interesting on the heat pad not helping as I think they do require more heat. But saying that hese seeds were in 20c heat in spare room growing in peat free Sylvagrow multipurpose growing medium with added John innes @charlotte @debs69
