Q.I Tried To Use Planting Bag But Had Little Luck, Can I Use The Soil From The Bags In Regular Pots Or Must I Dump The Soil?

I am new at gardening but have had some success with vegetables in my raised garden but trying to grow anything in the bags did not work. I am trying to plant flowers and I have many grow bags filled with soil. I hate to waste the soil. Should I just forget about keeping the soil?
