Thanx Bob - it's all good clean stuff

What time of year is best? Can I add it to my compost much in Autumn or is it better in Spring?

I have quite a lot of wood ash - how do I best use that?  It's so fine that it wold blow away sprinkling it straight on the soil or can I mix it with nettle juice and water it in?
