In the past my sweet pea seedlings germinated really well outside in early winter but like other people here they got munched, turned out to be slugs! I've started some indoors but I'll move them outside as soon as they germinate and be extra vigiliant.
cairnsie- I would probably wait a bit before you just bin them. Have you gently tapped them out and had a look at the root system? If I'm in any doubt,about any plant, I always have a look at the plants roots. If I think they are good and healthy then I tend not to chuck away. My advice would be put them outside, and maybe cut some of them back a bit to establish a more bushy growth further down the stems.
They are live plants that you grew from seed, even if I get one or two plants from sown seed then a job well done as far as I'm concerned
You can always sow in March as well
