Diluted tomato food is good as the npk is similar but they are a generic feed ..... I would always go for something more specific now the results are amazing

See if you can get some Buddhas tree advanced meta boost...... Your olants will reward you.... It's only a small bottle you only need a little 1ml per litre I have even used it on the wisteria this year and got 60+ flowers!!

I start feeding at about the size claringtons are above..... I feed at a quater of the recommended for 2 weeks then half for 2 weeks so on and so on until they are on full nutes.... Also wait for them to wilt a little as they take the nutes up quicker...there are so many nutrients out there chilli focus is ace but if ur pushing the boat out then look at Buddhas tree as they cater for root development, growth and flowering ........clarington they look ace the weather is picking up now so they should start romping away..... I'm using jacks magic compost this year and bat poo!!! Guano they are love love loving it.... I so wish I could post pics I should get an Instagram account and copy the link..... Clarington I cloning a few atm ( Galapoganese wild) she's wonderfully hairy and her leaves smell like chillis!!!! Remind me later in the year I will send you one ......

20 is fine chillies do well at 28 and down but anything lower than 5 they will stop growing and go I to stasis... This is when they stunt themselves it takes a lot of nutrients and heat to get them going again

Hosts fan you would be risking it putting them out with so few leaves mine are in flower and I'm not risking it!!!! They will be fine to 5??? however if it drops below this frequently you are risking them going into stasis . They will stop growing and getting them going again is tricky..... Put them out in the day bring them in at night

Kef I have just sowed some little elf for a competition ( growing chillies in a demijohn!) if they come up I will send you some.... My first lot are going into the poly tunnel hurrah but the last lot have just been potted on... 75 this year!! I have just spent a week at Norfolk chilli farm and had an ace time .... I have decided that I enjoy the growing so much I'm going to grow to sell next year and am also going to grow for a few producers which is a huge privalage...... Kef try soaking the seeds for 24 hours in Tra or Epsom salt
