Use Greenfield Hard Wood Ash as follows:

  • Mix with compost and use as mulch around ornamental plants, fruit and vegetables.
  • Spread it directly on soil in the vegetable, flower and fruit gardens @ 50-70 g per sq m.
  • Top dress the lawns and flowerbeds @ 1-2 cm of Wood Ash per year as a soil amendment.
  • In addition to potassium Greenfield Wood Ash also add phosphorus, aluminum, magnesium, sodium, and a few micro-nutrients, such as boron, copper, molybdenum, sulfur and zinc.
  • Don’t use it around acid-loving plants such as blueberries and azaleas, or on potatoes, which get scab disease if the pH is too high.
  • Note: Potassium is extremely soluble in water so Wood Ash must be kept dry before use.

Hard Wood Ash (as opposed to coal ash) can be a great addition to the fruit and vegetable gardens. It contains potassium which is essential for fruiting and flowering plants. Potassium regulates plants’ water balance (so tissue is firm and juicy, and plants resist stresses), improves root health, and has a part in transporting food within the plant and creating sugars and starches. Without enough potassium, vegetables, fruits and flowers are vulnerable to drought, frost, pests and diseases. Sprinkling wood ash straight onto the soil also deters slugs, snails, aphids and fruit fly away.

Root vegetables such as carrots, radish, parsnips and turnips, flower bulbs, peas, tomatoes and beans, and fruits such as dessert apples, redcurrants, gooseberries, cooking apples, pears, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, plums, apricots, grapes, cherries and blackcurrants all appreciate potassium. Use Greenfield Hard Wood Ash as follows:

  • Mix with compost and use as mulch around ornamental plants, fruit and vegetables.
  • Spread it directly on soil in the vegetable, flower and fruit gardens @ 50-70 g per sq m.
  • Top dress the lawns and flowerbeds @ 1-2 cm of Wood Ash per year as a soil amendment.
  • In addition to potassium Greenfield Wood Ash also add phosphorus, aluminum, magnesium, sodium, and a few micro-nutrients, such as boron, copper, molybdenum, sulfur and zinc.
