Just don't sow your "hot" stuff too early.......Chillies, Peppers, Tomatoes etc. will germinate happily in a heated ( propagator ) environment now but unless you have the light levels, most of them will end up leggy and weak in the UK climate.
Far better to wait until later in the year ( March maybe ? )......your seeds will still germinate but you will have the added advantage of higher light levels to keep them sturdy. Little point in producing early plants which grow tall before the all important flower production.
