For containers, for seasonal plants, before re planting I remove the top few inches of compost including where the roots ventured.  This is added to veg patch after spreading out for birds to search through.  Then fresh compost....I mix dried manure in added for new plants.  Every 3 years or so I completely empty the comtainers
