I have started to grow peppers this year - there was an offer on in Lidl so I bought the plants. They are beginning to grow now but it looks like they need bigger pots. The pots are probably 2.5 litre. Should I repot? Will they survive if they are already growing? Anything else I should know? Total novice

How many plants in the pot?

Just one plant per pot - I have 3

I have my peppers in troughs on the windowsill. 3 in one trough. They're growing really well, lots of peppers on them which we've already started eating. I'd think 2.5l is borderline big enough, you certainly don't need bigger than 5l.

I feed mine with comfrey tea & occasional tomato feed btw. They like a sunny spot. Are yours indoors or out?

Mine are growing in a mini plastic greenhouse in a very sunny spot. I also have cherry toms and toms which seem to be doing well.

Will re-pot them soon.
