I have to transplant about 12 8-year-old camellia flowering plants to large pots. They are about five/six feet tall. What is the best way of doing it without damaging the plants?

    When I have to repot a plant that large, I find it easiest to do by laying them down. This makes it easier to handle them and they are less likely to be damaged by falling over. A long knife should be run around the inside of the pot to loosen the roots from the pot.
