Easy Transplant

Martha Stewart Living, May 2006
Repotting a cactus can be prickly business. Kraft paper or newspaper folded into a strip will protect you. Wearing gardening gloves, wrap the strip around the middle of the plant and grasp the ends firmly with one hand. Use the other hand to scoop up the cactus with a trowel and transfer it to a new container.
