Put an inch or two of compost in a pot. Remove the plant from its old pot by turning it upside down and gently tapping the rim. Put the plant in the new pot and add compost. Firm the compost with your fingertips, leaving room at the top of the pot for watering. Water the plant and allow it to drain. Cover the pot to retain moisture and keep it warm.
Dig a hole that is a few inches wider than the root ball. Add a thick layer of compost all round the hole. Place the plant in the hole, making sure that the plant is at the same level as it was in the pot. Fill the hole with a 50:50 mixture of compost and soil. Firm the mixture around the plant and then water it well.
