What can I do with wood ash? Besides tossing in the woods. What garden plants or veggies like it?
We have a request from November that deals with part of this question. - Editor
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.
We have always uses our fireplace ash on our roses.. they do well.. and we burn our horse manure.. (it has wood shavings and hay mixed in)and then we burn it. It will smolder for days then we use the ash on out pecan trees..and our veg. Garden.. everything flourishes.
