Ash Disposal Tip

Supercharge your compost by adding your recycled ash. Growing plants need plenty of trace elements that ash contains, and it will actually increase the PH of your soil as ash is naturally alkaline. This will allow you to grow plants such as lavender and honeysuckle that are much loved by bees which wouldn’t be able to thrive in more acidic soils.

What’s more, if you have problems with slugs and snails, sprinkling ash around your plants will deter these creatures without having to use lethal poisons or expensive salt.
