Hi Tina it all sounds the same as the RHS (Wood ash may contain useful levels of potassium (about three percent), a major plant nutrient associated with flowering and fruiting. However, the levels will vary depending on the age of the wood that was burnt; young wood such as from pruning will have higher potassium content than older, thicker branches.)
dont forget its a limeing agent good luck

Hi all i do have question about Blueberries, at the moment were penned in today our roads closed,due to the Iron Man run,started at 7am, 2.4 mile sea swim,112 miles bike ride, and a full marathon,26.2 miles only done once a year as it takes a year to recover and its chucking it down, SO i thought as i passed on mi bike id just drop in and ask ,has anyone grown any Blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum), one is called Giant (Bluejay Goldtraube,Jersey) and one is Super, Patriot,if there more i don't know, i've not grown any at all but am told they are very Antioxidant fruit so were going for it, has anyone grown any and are they sweet enough off the tree or just for jam, Right whos nicked mi bike i waslooking forward to that 112 mile NOT ,,maybe next year then OK manyofem Alan 4711
