I Have about 20 heavy pots that I grow bedding plants in each year. In the fall I pull all the dead plants out and remove all dead roots. next Spring when I put in new annuals and they are growing good I have a lot of weeds growing in the pots too, I do not want throw out the potting soil each fall, some helpful advice would be appreciated

Regards Brian

I like to solarize my soil in large black containers. This will heat the soil up and kill off anything that could be growing in it. The sun will heat these containers naturally, and help you maintain clean soil.
