They need consistent warmth and light to really get going.I started my peppers indoors in Feb, first in a propagator then old yoghurt pots, the bigger pots until about 9"-12" high. Only recently, once cold nights have gone, have I put them in the (unheated) GH, and tend to protect with some thin bubblewrap if temps drop. A lot of peppers, chillis, toms and cucs can be seriously 'checked' during the Spring due to any large temperature changes which they find it difficult to recover from. So be cautious and don't be in too much of a hurry. Harden the young plants off outside during warm daytime temps but be careful overnight.
