Is there anything in the garden or allotment that would benefit from the ash that I have left over from the incinerator?
It depends on what you have been burning. if it is wood ash , then its good sprinkled around fruit trees in spring. if the wood had paint on, or plastics were involved, I would bin it.
Not the crematorium?
Our wood ash goes on the compost heap, I should think garden bonfire ash has a similar composition as long as the plastic pots and bags don't get in there
My allotment neighbour has old dried and dead brambles as well as young stuff that keep growing over into my plot so I cut them back to the boundary and used them. I also added some of my runner bean stems as I had so many and some strawberry plants.
In that case, I would use it on fruit trees, or mixed in the compost heap.
all good stuff
There's something in my mind about ash and raspberries but wait til a fruit grower turns up to comment. I might have got that wrong
Its good on raspberries or blackcurrants too.
I was right.
If I could find my raspberries amongst the nettles Id take the ash pan out there tomorrow
What about red currants? Will be planting out them and raspberries in my now-organised allotment in the next couple of weeks.
Redcurrants and gooseberries like wood ash too.
