|Might be time to empty those flower boxes and refresh the soil. Over time it can become compacted and not drain well, or become a haven for pests. I'd remove all the soil and replace it with fresh potting soil. You won't be introducing insect pests with potting soil and it will drain quickly so the roots of your plants will not become waterlogged or overly dry. Good luck with your next round of plants!
