My peppers grew true leaves in the polytunnel, so I potted them up from plug trays into 7cm pots using multipurpose. That was about a month ago, and they've barely moved. I am watering thoroughly, then leaving them to dry out nearly completely before watering again, and feeding with seaweed once a week. I have made a little tent of fleece over them within the tunnel, to try to generate a bit more heat. Is there anything else I could do?
