I abandoned a bottle garden 3 years ago. There is some intresting stuff going on in those bottles now. I know sometimes decomposed plant material can add nutrients to soil so I'm not sure if I should mix it with new soil or not.. I just don't know if what I have is good or toxic. Please help I don't want to waste my accidentally created compost if it could be valuable to my new garden.

I would dump it into my compost pile (if I had one Smiling ). But I don't so I would probably dump it into an un-used corner of my veggie garden where I put old potting soil, to be dug in next winter.

You can spread it on any ground outside, but not in a pot or container inside or out. I would just toss it in the lawn.

No reason not to dig it into the garden soil away from the plants. It's an accepted way to improve soil.
