Does anyone have any handy tricks or tips for getting an EXTREMELY root bound mint out of a container (without using dynamite...)? I chiseled away at it for a half hour today and it was exhausting - the pot is completely busting at the seams with hard, woody roots and it won't budge. I'm tempted to just get rid of it, but it's a really pretty container that I'd like to keep. My plan was to re-divide the mint and plant it again in the same pot, but it's not going so well.
Thanks for any suggestions!
