Throw em in the ground man. You'll get some growth and maybe some mini-buds but next year you'll be in good shape.
Give em southern exposure and good consistent watering. Get the clay out though.

I can't say what grows best. The moment I do, someone else will say differently.
I have huge cascades. My new Magnums are already out of the ground. My old Hallertauers are growing okay. We will see on the others but I know they'll grow fine.

I'm a pretty good gardener so this isn't hard for me.
