Just about *all* garden variety plants can use the ash... just work it into the topsoil when preparing for planting. Also, lillies are especially appreciative of ashes, as are any plants in the onion/garlic family.

We put our wood stove ashes in the garden. My husband roto-tils it all in and it is good for all vegetables.
