What to do the ashes from a Bonfire?
Don’t know what to do with those ashes? This is a tip for those who have ash from a wood burner or fireplace. Place it in your garden or flower beds over winter, not all in the same place, just here and there. In spring as you till/working the ash in the ground, you’ll find how it makes your ground so much more lose and easy to work with.
I also think there is some added fertilizer that naturally comes from the ash. It really does good things to your ground. Can’t wait for spring, have had enough of winter.
As long as you follow a few simple precautions, wood ashes can be used to benefit the garden in three ways: as a fertilizer, as a soil amendment, or as an insect repellent.
