Mine are already up, but then I'm feeding with a liquid low nitrogen, high phosphorus, high potassium fertilizer (Omega 1-5-5). I'll pot my serranos and other peppers up into 4 inch pots before they're ready to go out in the garden. I've never had a problem with peppers not being hot enough. Maybe a little milder in cool rainy summers, but even the last 2 years with all the rain we had (64 and 57 inches) my caribbean jerk sauce with habaneros still made me cry. [tears]

Try planting them near the south side of your house, that should make them nice and hot.

I don't even use them green, I always harvest them after they turn red. I think they have more flavor then.
