|The easiest approach is to simply set the hanging planters on a table or other hard surface. If the bottoms are too round to do this, you can dig and transplant the plants into a regular container. Start by filling the container about half full of moistened potting soil. Then use two kitchen forks to ease each plant out of the hanging basket, trying to get as many of the roots as possible. Set the plant into the container and immediately cover the roots with moistened potting soil so they don't dry out. Repeat with the remaining plants. Once everything is planted, water well to help settle the soil. Good luck with your containerized garden!
