Using Wood Ash To Feed Garden Plants.

Wood ashes contain potassium,some phosphorous and magnesium.They also contain calcium which makes the soil more alkaline so do not put on any of your lime hating plants like Rhododendron, Azaleas or Conifers as they do not like wood ash on them either.They are particularly beneficial around deciduous trees,including fruit trees,vegetables,(not potatoes) bulbs, annuals and perennials.If you are topdressing flower beds with wood ash use not more than 1cm per year.
