Zoomer - Pleased to hear your SPs are doing well. Weather-wise, I think (here in the Midlands anyway) the present one year has been favourable.
Re watering & frosty weather, I just try to caution against those tiny roots being encased in a block of ice and they really don't mind being kept on the dry side....an entirely different matter in the growing season though, when they need copious amounts of water & sun.
A little growth at this time would be acceptable inasmuch as they will be planted out in a month or so in some parts of the country.
Mine are about so at the moment:
PS......two seedlings per pot.
