spring onions/peppers

Options
Can someone please help me?

I have potted some spring onions and peppers in pots in the kitchen.

peppers are getting quite big - few inches - can these go outside in a garden pot (not in my veg patch as i have ran out of room!)

Spring onions - My OH put these ALL in one little pot, they're tall with black blobs on the end - can these go outside now? will i need to thin them out?

Thank you so much

    Black blobs are the old seed husks. My Spring onions are all outside, will only thin out when the 'thinings' are large enough to eat.

    That could be an awful amount of spring onions , so I think you will have to thin ,

    Personally, I would ensure the spring onion pot is well watered and them split them gently by hand. You can then plant out a neat row of them.

    Unless you have a very sunny well sheltered garden, I would grow the peppers on a sunny windowsill like a house plant - ensure you pot them on and feed them with tomato feed regularly.

    Depends where you live, peppers do need heat /warmth to prosper, I am in South Hampshire and even here outside peppers are problematic, they do need a good summer outside

    If you can just pot them on into slightly larger pot and wait until end of month then you will stand a better chance
