Nice hosts Zimbabwe black is a lovely plant.... Pot up the plug ones into cups paper or polystrene or even plastic they are deep enough and concentrate heat wonderfully.... And they are cheap!

They like the heat but beware of scorching if you have a green tunnel this shouldn't be a problem... Still ventilate as this also allows predatory insects in to get this pesky problem bugs..... Mine are in final pots ( morrisons 10l flower buckets 99p for 10 big pots they are ace... Choose your food wisely about now I would start with chilli focus or if small buddahs tree meta boost and shortly a flower promoting feed! Have you bitten the bullet and grown some verd?

Don't forget the roots are what is growing not the top and without a good root structure you are never going to get a good crop

Overwintering is just putting your chilli into a dormant state.... Cut back to the first v in the stem and keep dry hardly watering at all over the winter ( be warned you will probably get a greenfly infestation) then in spring water and feed and they should spring back to life.....bacctum and annum varieties do best

Fab fab fab..... Chris I use a number of feeds based on hydroponic growing.... My fave this year is buddahs tree getting amazing results with chilli's and outside growth... Tomato feed will do but the ratios are off chilli focus is no more expensive than tomorite.... There is an excellent range of hydro feeds that are also suitable for soil ( including flower promoting) in poundland.....
