We have a woodburner, and despite it being the middle of April, its still getting plenty of evening use! I'm pretty sure the ash can be used on things like roses, but is there anything else that would benefit? Also, is it just a case of digging it into the soil, or can it be watered in too? Any advice or tips greatly apprecaited. Thank you.
I too have an open fire and would love to be able to put the ash to good use. Does this depend on whether we burn logs or coal?? Can both be used in the garden?
I add our wood ash to the compost heaps.
Thanks for for the advice everyone. We only have a wood burner, not multi-fuel, and don't burn treated wood.
I use wod ash fro log fires on most flowering plants, sprinkled lightly early Spring and also also around vegetables like broad beans, broccoli and cauliflower (which is a flowerhead of course!) I find it very useful and though it does raise the Ph it is not as strong as lime - but if your soil is already alkaline then not really advisable.
