Can I reuse plant soil in containers?

I want to reuse the soil from my 20+ window boxes instead of replacing it this year.

Question:

I want to reuse the soil from my 20+ window boxes instead of replacing it this year. How do I amend the soil so it can support plants for another year?

—Nancy Arneson

Answer:

Hi Nancy,

I usually recommend customers replace the top few inches of soil in their containers to encourage and support the root systems of plants for the new season.  Any effort you put into breaking up the existing soil will help too.  Old soil tends to be lacking in nutrients, so you will benefit from the addition of a slow release fertilizer like Miracle Gro Shake and Feed or Osmocote!
