The best wood ash for gardens is obtain from burning twiggy stuff, such as from a garden bonfire or a bonfire to burn up the bits and pieces left after an overgrown hedge has been sorted out.

A lot of people are hopeful that wood ash from wood burners can be used for gardens, but sadly the ash from logs doesn't have as much potash as the ash from twiggy stuff.
