Can the ash from a BBQ be put onto the garden and pots or will it cause problems for plants



In the garden should be fine, as long as you spread it around well. May be too concentrated and alkaline for pots.

Depends on the fuel you're using - if its wood, then you can sprinkle it about, if its from coals, you can't.

I'm possibly ignorant, because we hardly ever see coal here, but:

I sort of agree, Tubrethil, but we do use coals a lot here and, much, much worse I think, barbecue lighter fuel, eugh, taints the food...

Too much like one of my neighbors. After a six-pack or two, he decides to have a barbeque, then nearly immolates himself with 2 l of charcoal, and 4 l of lighter fluid! KaWHUMPH!! YAHEEOW!!! At least he doesn't have to worry about people inviting themselves over. : D
