Question: Ash

Good morning. Forgive me my ignorance with this question ... A friend of mine passed by my house and seeing the garden he asked me why I didn't spill all the ashes of my fireplace over the vegetable garden "because it is good and fertilizer" ... Well ... I I haven't done it yet ... better to ask the experts if indeed it is a right thing to do ... What do I do? Thanks for the answer.
Ahh a question, always on the cochineal ... Was my persimmon plant chock full of cochineal (never seen before) treated with white oil in February? Thanks

Answer: Ash

Dear Helene,
the use of ash as a soil improver in the garden is certainly an excellent idea, provided you use it in quantities that are not excessive. The ash contains a good quantity of mineral salts, such as potassium and phosphorus, with small amounts of copper and iron, so if we refine the soil with ash we remind that it will still be necessary to add a nitrogen fertilizer, such as manure. In principle, approximately 150-200 g of ash per square meter of garden are more than sufficient, once a year. Excesses of ash can make the soil excessively alkaline; absolutely avoid using it in the soil of acidophilous garden plants.
As far as cochineal is concerned, if there are many insects, it mixes a pyrethrum-based insecticide with white oil, to be administered only once in February.
