I got mine last weekend and have them all chitting 1st, 2nd and main in a cool north facing room on a window sill and normally do this each year, they tend to be fine think the main crop ones take longer to grow the chits and by the time I plant them out the shoots are about 2.5cm tall same size as earlies are when planted

depends are you growing them in a wigwam or straight row?

you could lean them in the direction you want them to grow when they are a bit bigger

Wills I would leave them when you buy them in garden centres - some times they have 8 or more plantlets in a 9cm pot just plant them out all together
