If soil drains ok just cut bottom off, dig down few cm (enough to keep it secure) throw in hand full of ferts for later on (ffb or guano I used)then put bucket in and fill with your soil mix. 
 

if ground is heavy clay I tend to do the same but put on Small mound of soil, just enough to let water run off and not create a sump effect. 
 

worked for me

This ground has alot of brambles but I have to further investigate the ground conditions.

Suppose the soil mound can mixed with coco to maximise drainage.nice idea dude.

Best of getting in there and having a look. If soil is decent may not need buckets tbh. Just plant directly. I only really use towers/ buckets on. My plot as it is very heavy clay

I want to be sureure just in case. Would rather have them in properly PH'd soil buckets than risking stunt growth and if the roots like the ground they can always grow down more for more nutrients. 

 

Do your roots grow through the mould and into the ground ?
