Recycling Potting Soil

Post  jenjehle on 5/3/2010, 4:39 pm

Hey, I have yet another question...


When I get done transplanting seedlings into the garden, can I re-use the potting soil that the seedling was in? I have found lately that I have potting soil left from various projects and I wondered if using it for a totally different plant or veggie would be a problem. I usually buy good potting mix and I hate to just pitch it if I can re-use it. This last time, I bought "Pro-Mix Ultimate Organic Mix". It's not really expensive but it's not the cheapest stuff either. Of course, I would remove any loose roots or the like if there were any there.

What do you think? Any harm in re-using it?

Thanks again for any thoughts!

I reuse mine. Just throw it into a 5 gallon bucket and at some point, go through and pull out the dead roots, crumble it all back up, add some compost and go with it.
