I then go dig up the plant and I don't skimp on the amount of soil I take with it. Get as much as you can so as not to disturb the root system too much. Bring the plant to the big hole full of water and plop it right in. Yes, plop the plant into the hole filled with water.
Go away and do something else until all the water is gone. Depending on your soil type this could be as little as 10 - 15 minutes.
