They need some sun. If you find any send some our way, please.

Sun, sun, sun, that's what they need I'm afraid.

I sometimes end up sticking mine in a drawer till they ripen and or make green chutney. I thought with the hot early spring this year I would be streets ahead but the nights have been so called and very few sunny days.

Try putting a ripe one near them - the gas given off by ripe ones encourages the rest.(A supermarket one would be fine, if you can position it somewhere near a truss of green ones.)Then when you have some red ones leave one on the plant until another is ripening.
