Re-using last Spring's compost for bulbs again?
I have a couple of pots that I planted with Spring bulbs last year and following their removal planted peacock orchids (the latter were a disaster as I think I allowed the bulbs to dry out in the Summer). My question is, can I simply re-use this compost to plant next Spring's bulbs? I will be buying new bulbs (probably narcissus and tulips) and I think I read somewhere that bulbs don't require feeding since everything they'll be using to grow with is already contained within the bulb (unless you're going to use the same bulbs again for the next season in which case you feed them after flowering). That being the case, I don't see the point in splashing out on new compost if all they require is a growing medium. Am I right? Appreciate any thoughts.
