Hi I live in deep south Georgia.My other question is after winter do I re-use old potting soil with some new soil for new plants and when is the best time to start planting again?

Old potting soil can be used over and over but it tends to lose some of its nutrients as it ages. I like to mix new potting soil into the old (about 1/3 new to 2/3 old). This helps fluff it up a bit and also adds some nutrients. You can start planting in mid- to late-March. Best wishes with your container garden!
