    Loosen dirt from inside pot. Dig hole in a location that gets good drainage and sunshine. Lift plant out of pot carefully, making sure roots arent tight. Place into newly dug hole. Backfill with dirt. Water a little daily.

    Both suggestions are perfect for replanting. I have done this method for years.

    Good explanations above. Also, your lily may be ready to separate. This might be more than you want to do but when you're in the process of reporting, look to see if there are multiple bulbs that you can gently separate and plant them individually to create more plants that will each grow larger of course.

    Dig a hole bigger than your pot, place the flower and the soil in the hole, and cover it with the soil you removed.
