Do any of you use wood ashes on your lawn or garden?
The reason I ask is because a Ph test last year indicated that my back yard is slightly acidic (5.8 I think). From what I've read, wood ash can be used to raise soil ph. (plus add some potassium) I'm considering apply some to my lawn and would like to get your opinions before I do. I have a large oak tree that drops lots of leafs, sticks and small branches and I have collect a large pile now.
Should I use them on the lawn? If so how much?
Any other thoughts or concerns?
