Can already used soil from last year be re-used?

We all know the situation; the potting soil that has been in the pot or planter for a while, is looking good on the eye. Could this potting soil be recycled?

It is better not to recycle used potting soil. The necessary nutrients are no longer optimally present and certain minerals have accumulated by watering and fertilizing. Also the acidity (pH) has changed. Measuring the acidity and correcting it with lime doesn't offset buying new potting soil.

You don't have to throw away old potting soil though. Preferably use it for improving the organic matter content of the garden soil.
