Wood ash

Ros Hamilton asked 12 years ago
I have been told that wood ash from a small iron stove are so burnt out that they are useless for the garden. Is this so? At the moment I throw them onto the lawn, is this OK?

Wood ash contains small but useful amounts of potash and can be beneficial around apple trees and rose bushes, but not much good on the lawn.
