At this stage they should be moved to a site where they will get plenty of sunlight; ideally to a heated greenhouse or warm conservatory. Once all chance of frost has passed the plants can be transplanted into growing beds or patio tubs outside, harden off first.Spacing 30-60cm x 45-90cm. Grow on at 16-23°C.
