    What height would you pinch them out to?

    I would give them a good watering and plant them out. ( unless your ground is frozen.) Should have been bought in the Autumn, planted out October to November, but I’m sure they’ll be ok. I don’t think there’s any reason to complain, they’re not bad plants for this time of the year.
