Does anyone have information on using charcoal as a soil conditioner?The charcoal has come from bonfires ,used to clear mostly hazel and hawthorn shrubs .I have extremely heavy neutral ph soil and am mostly growing vegetables on it.
I remember reading that it's pretty useful stuff when mixed with soil and is/was widely used around the world, especially in ancient times. Google "charcoal soil conditioner" and "Terra Preta" for some interesting reading.
Are there any plants that particularly benefit from using Charcoal?
