Besides, when can I start putting plants outside?
Most houseplants be put outside between May and September. Timings do vary around the country and from year to year, so to be safe, wait until about 2-4 weeks since the last frost. If your garden is exposed, then you may also choose to wait a little later.
Additionally, should you break up the roots when planting? Loosening (also known as teasing or tickling) the roots before planting in the ground will allow you to spread the roots out in all directions, so they will branch out in the soil and form a good foundation for the plant. This is a good planting technique for all plants, but it is crucial for plants that are pot bound.

- Forsythia. A great easy-going shrub to give your garden a vibrant cloud of yellow flowers in spring.
Do you pack soil when planting?
A plant with dense, circling roots should always be loosened thoroughly before repotting. Add a handful of soil at a time, gently but firmly packing each scoop in and around the roots so it still feels springy and spongy when pressed.
