Will I, Won't I?

Cerinthe major var. purpurescens
I've been humming and hawing about potting my Ricinus on into their 3rd pot-size for ages.
There has been no growth for ages but I noticed in the last few days, things have started to FINALLY shoot up, including the Ricinus.
Considering the Ricinus should be planted in the ground in about a week, was there any point to potting on now? Also on the down-side was the fact that there would physically be no space for them in the greenhouse if they went into bigger pots.
But the upside for potting-on won out in the end. My Ricinus are smaller than they were this time last year. If I pot them on now and maybe plant them out a week later than last year, might they not grow better? Mine never grow a whole lot bigger once they go into the ground so the growing has to be done first.
So, yes, I bit the bullet this evening and missed Chelsea to pot them all on!
