Red pepper problem.

 Hi, could someone please give me some advice on what to do with my red pepper plant. I grew these from seed they have only grown to this stage so far.I realise that they need lots of warmth and sun,which although the weather is good for the time of year, it is not warm enough and quite cold at night. I have now  brought them into my carport but they have not grown anymore.Should i bring them into the conservatory where it is light and warm,or should i just give up on them and dump them. is it too late in the season for them to grow and ripen. I did sow the seeds a little late. many thanks Elizabeth.

 Hi, i grew these two Rose bushes from seed in 2010.started them off in pots,then gradually increased the size of pot until they became potbound in the largest pot, and last autumn i transplanted them into the ground where they have put on quite a lot of growth since.They have nearly finished flowering with just a few flowers left at the top, the bottom leaves are yellowing.What i would like to know is when do i cut them back and how far.When they were in pots i just used to trim them a little and tidy them up because  was afraid to cut them back too much, but they did look a bit straggley but since  putting them in the ground they became bushier and i would like to keep them this way.so could anyone please advise. Many thanks Elizabeth.
