Is hardwood charcoal ash good plant fertiliser?

andy2007July 15, 2006

I learned from a friend that barbecue hardwood charcoal's

leftover ash is not to be thrown away into garbage. It is

a good plant fertiliser when mixed with soil. Is this

correct? andy2007

Because it is alkaline, it may help neutralize acid soil.

Although, in Missisauga, the soil is more likely to be alkaline than acidic, so wood ash may not be a good idea.
