Wood / coal ash

Kent, United Kingdom Gb

We're having a wood-burning stove installed. I've heard that wood ash is good for the garden as it can enrich the soil, but as the new stove is dual fuel (i.e. burns both wood and coal) would the ash still be suitable?



I don't think coal ash is good for plants. Some people say a small amount is ok, but i would not risk it.
