|It was about transplanting plants to another pot. It said to bury a similar sized pot first to form the transplant hole. I did that today for the first time, in transplanting a big begonia. Worked like a charm! Why did I never think of that?
A big thanks to the member who posted that.

|Ha! That's funny, because those are essentially the same instructions I got for planting my new young roses, except it was in the ground and not in a pot. Just did that today. Worked out very nicely!|
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

|Hehe, might be the perfect tip for those following the method. Somehow, I always prefer to scatter the roots when I lift the plant off it's pot.|
I feel they are too entangled/strangled and they need a little help to spread out in the new "home". Whether it's a bigger pot or out in the garden.
Not sure this is the best way, but that's what I do.

|I learned this method when I worked at seedsprout nursery....rose hybridizers perfected it because it took so long from start to finish for a new rose and the success rate of "jumping" into a larger pot was greater this way. |
