You will have to be careful and make sure not to disturb the roots. Carefully turn the pot upside down with your hand over the opening. This will get the whole thing out in one piece with a little wiggling, or tapping on the pot.

Dig a hole slightly bigger than the mass of roots and dirt. Place it in the hole and cover with soil. Water in immediately, then add more soil if needed.
