old seed starting soil

Post  westie42 on 3/29/2011, 2:36 pm

Most sources would tell you to throw it away because of molds and other bad things that may have grown along with the seedlings. Guess I may be too hard headed to follow advice mine tends to be reused for a short while then lands in the composter or just leveled across the garden.

Compost it!

I use vermiculite for the reason that it will dry back out and I can likely reuse it again and again.
