The Q&A Archives: Container planting

Question: I was wondering if it is okay to take last years soil from my containers, dump it all in a wheelbarrow, mix new potting soil and feed and reuse for this year?

Answer: Potting soil can become depleted over a few years of use so you'll want to mix some fresh potting soil into it before using it again. Your idea of mixing everything together in a wheelbarrow is a good one.

Best wishes with your garden!
