My partner and I bought a couple of plants today (A young Hebe and Verburnum Tinus) which were reduced by quite a lot. But when we got them home we found they were extremely pot bound, so much so that we couldn't break up the roots before planting them in the ground. So we just loosened the soil a bit and put them in....Was that a bad thing to do?? We both thought that the roots, once in the garden with all the room to move, would just just release them selves and start spreading out. But I'm not so sure now, thinking about it. I just read about planting pot bound plants and it says you should soak them in water first if they are like that. So, should we dig them up again tomorrow and soak them in a bucket of water??
