hi, i like to add soot to my cabbages and leeks. my local chimney sweep is kind enough to give me the soot  but says most people burn anthracite.

is this soot ok to use ?

thanks rachel

I think the jury is still out on this one, Rachel.  Even your chimney sweep cannot guarantee what people have burned and therefore what the soot comes from,  If its oil it's ntt good stuff.  Wood soot maybe, but there are pros and I'm afraid mainly cons about using this and coal soot now.
