I live in the Inland Empire / eastern reaches of the LA Basin, and am looking to start growing my own hops this next season. Does anyone on the forum from this general area have particular tips? I've done some searching on other forums, and it's all fairly non-descript advice.

Based on my location and housing situation (a decent bit of property with lots of sunny areas but not great soil, and I don't own it, so can't commit to major structural adjustments), I'm looking at planters of some sort. Cascade seems to come up fairly regularly as a decent variety for this area, and I'd like to give that a try.

So I guess I'm looking overall for some points on what varieties will do best here, and what kind of containers will do best in the long-run.
