Is it a good idea to spread this ash on top of the compost layer I’ve put down or should it be spread on top of the soil before the compost layer is added? And, of course, how much should I be using? Many thanks Richard Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
