Some TIPS on how to use ash from your wood
Wood ash contains most of the 13 essential nutrients that the soil supplies for plant growth. When wood burns, it gives off nitrogen and sulfur as gasses. But calcium, potassium, magnesium and other trace elements don`t volatilize; they remain with the ash. Some of what is left in the ash include carbonates and oxides. These are valuable liming agents that can raise pH and help neutralize acid soils. Here you can find some concrete tips on how to use ash from wood: Wear eye protection, gloves and a dust mask. Do not scatter ashes in the wind Do not use ash from burning trash, cardboard, coal or pressure-treated, painted or stained wood. These materials can contain potentially harmful substances. Do not use wood ash where potatoes will be planted, as it encourages scab disease, or on acid-loving plants Never leave wood ash in lumps or piles Do not apply ash at time of seeding Do not add ash with nitrogen fertilizers such as ammonium sulfate (21-0-0-24S), urea (46-0-0) or ammonium nitrate (34-0-0).
