    You can use leftover potting soil. Just aerate really well and maybe add some new to old!

    It is fine. I like to add more vermiculite and a little peat mos.
  • I use fresh, no nutrients left in the soil.

    I reuse the soil for a couple of years but I mix in a little new soil to freshen it. Unless my plants were not healthy, then it needs to be removed and the planter should be washed with dish detergent and rinsed well.

    I have always used the old. Just add some new to it and slow release fertilizer.
