Growing Sweet Peas

I have just planted mine from the seeds I collected in October.  This is the first time I have grown from  seed I planted half in seed compost and the other half in general compost and they have both begun to show.   Bit of an experiment but so far so good for both.   Both are on the back bedroom windowsill so getting the rays and heat from the house.   Once they come through do they need the cold then to continue growth.   I do have an unheated GH, so could move them into there.   Any recommendations.
