Step 2

Gently loosen the plants in the modules or pots and then dig them out with a dibber or pencil, holding onto a leaf and not the delicate stem.

Step 3

Drop the roots of the plant into the hole in the compost tap the pot to distribute the compost evenly around the roots. Water using a watering can with a fine spray.
