Last Year’s Potting Soil

The best advice is to dump it in your garden or woods, only reuse if you are sure there are no disease problems left over from the previous season. You will need to fertilize more frequently the second year because many of the nutrients have been lost or used by the plants the previous season. Organic media will decrease as well, which may slow water drainage and root growth. Best advice, start with new soil each year if possible.
