Answer: You can turn them sideways and plant in a shallow trench with the top few leaves (four or five) showing if you want to try to establish more roots faster. You want to end up with two or three inches of soil on top of the sideways stem; remove the leaves on the part you bury. This also avoids digging deeper where the soil is still cooler -- they prefer warmer soil. Make sure to condition them gradually to being outdoors in the weather before you plant them.
