I don't think your okra will be happy if you dig and move them so why not try placing a stake in the container and training the okra around the stake? Or, drive a stake into the ground next to the container and train the okra onto it. Your other plants can be allowed to cascade over the opposite rim of the container and everyone should have plenty of room to grow. They might look a little messy but they should still produce for you. Hope you have a great harvest!
