If you have pot bound plants and you need to clean the potting medium off
them. Use one of those $0.50 attachments that fit on the end of a garden hose
that concentrates the stream in to a nice jet.  They work very well in
cleaning up a large Hosta that you have removed from the field so you can get
at them with a knife and know were you are cutting.
