West Somerset, England
I lost a plant unexpectedly, and when I dug it out, it came out still pot-shaped, after three years in the ground. Obviously, I hadn't 'teased' the roots out enough. Unfortunately, many plants are pot-bound when you buy them. Please could anyone tell me how to 'tease' the roots out to give such plants the best chance of growing? How rough can you be with them?
