Hey. Make sure your soil is ready (temperature, fertilized, compost turned in, someting for the plant to climb or room to wander. Loosen soil double the size of the root ball. Carefully remove from pots (be careful not to tear up roots) If roots are really packed GENTLY tease a few loose. Set into ground, keeping top of soil on plant even with planting area. Gently push soil around edges of plant's original dirt and tap down gently to make sure no air bubbles are under or around. Water regularly for several weeks.
