Calling all Southern California growers!
I'm looking for advice/help in growing hops in this dry and hot region of the USA. The soil around my house is pretty dried out and dead, the grass barely grows on it! So I'm looking into possibly growing in planters, I've read a couple articles on that. What have been your experiences with this?
Also, what kind of insects do these plants attract? I Have heard the cones referred to as "flowers", are they technically a flower and do they attract them damn flying bugs (primarily bees)???
