For container gardening I would use new compost, veggies are hungry feeders. Use water retaining gel crystals or buy compost with this added. If you have room buy a compost bin and recycle the old compost, mix it with all your organic uncooked kitchen waste. Failing that give your old compost to a neighbour to mulch their borders with or take it to your local allotment garden or put it on Freecycle. Hope this helps.
