Easy Planting Tip for Indoor Pots

I saw this tip on a garden show (was it British icon Monty Don?) a few months back and when I went to move this indoor plant into a more permanent home, it came back to me. After choosing a pot with drainage holes (or placing rocks/pottery shards to allow water to collect in the bottom), remove the plant from the pot it has been growing in and use that empty container to use as a guide to fill the new pot with dirt. You can manipulate the plastic container, turn and pack the dirt and fill to the right height easily. Then remove the plastic guide pot...
And you are left with a hole the exact size of the plant you are moving. I gently lowered it into the dirt hole and it was as snug as a bug. Perfect!
