I started mine around 10th April and have potted on twice, just put them in the ground in a greenhouse and some along a south facing wall. They're just under 2 foot tall, but are thick stemmed with yellow flowers that have just appeared.
Some varieties are quicker to maturity than others (eg Cherrys might be 2months from planting in the ground, but beefsteaks will be more like 3)
I'd suggest sowing a few in stages next spring as you never know what the weather will do. That's my plan anyway this year's my first year growing anything.
Do you know if you plant them deeper each time you pot on they grow roots from the stem so it makes them stronger.
