The Best Way to Reuse Old Potting Soil From Your Pots & Hanging Baskets!

If there’s one thing you know for sure, it’s that potting soil should not be saved and reused from year to year. After a growing season, the soil in containers has lost almost all of its structure and nutrients. There isn’t enough life force in the soil to sustain new plants if you merely place them in there.

How then do you revitalize aging soil? In truth, all you need is a little bit of space, whether it’s a corner of your yard, a compost bin, or simply a couple of garbage cans.

2. Creating a Compost Pile for Potting Soil

The location of your compost pile for potting soil is not important. Even just a little bit of room off to one side of your garden will do. You can use a large trash can or drum.

Primarily, you need somewhere to store the ingredients. The pile must have a way to drain water so that it doesn’t become soaked. If you’re going to be using a big trash can or bin, you should poke some holes in the bottom to let the water out.

Put your old potting soil and plant waste in the pile once you’ve decided where to put it. Leaves and stems should be chopped into small pieces before being added.

** A compost pile for potting soil will work best if the materials added are as tiny as feasible. This facilitates a rapid disintegration and incorporation of all constituents.
