Planting multiple plants in one pot.

whip1 Zone 5 NE OhioAugust 18, 2012

I have 2 pots of small jades with 4 plants in each pot. Here's a picture.

I want to plant them all into this pot.

I'm going for a forest look. I think it was greenman that did something similiar, and I really liked the look. So, at the risk of sounding dumb, is there an easy way to put 8 plants into the pot while keeping them standing upright? How do you manage all of the plants with only 2 hands?

Have someone help you. Whenever i try to do it by myself, i usually prop it up by placing rocks around the rootball to keep them stable.
And to keep them standing up put rocks around the base of the plant, or put a stick in the dirt and use string to "tie" it all together.
