  • Don’t throw out the flats, containers and plug trays in which plants are sold. Think instead of reusing them, or at least put them in the recycling.
  • Also reuse your containers. Wash them with a brush and soapy water. To dislodge deposits of mineral salts on clay pots, soak them in water to which vinegar has been added. Store that type of pot where it won’t freeze.
  • It’s not necessary to change the potting soil in your containers every year. You can generally reuse it for two or three years, improving it with some compost and new soil. However, if your plants have been sick or infested with insects, get rid of the old soil.
