    I'd wait a little while, perhaps until after mayday to plant them out personally.
    It's getting harder & harder to keep the government in the manner to which they have become accustomed.

    Depends where you live, I am south Hants, and to be 100% safe mid May, if you are in the Orkneys this is obviously later, Guernsey obviously earlier

    You could put them out now, its just if you get a late frost it could kill them. You could put them out but covered with cloches and if there is a frost predicted add extra cover at night?
    Other wise as the other posters have said leave a few more weeks.

    One thing I would suggest, if they're doing really well, move them into bigger pots in the greenhouse. They'll be fine, continue to grow, & it'll do them good for when you plant them out in the soil.:)
