Q.

Ashes from Wild Cherry trees.

Zone 46528 | Anonymous added on February 11, 2018 | Answered

We cut down 16 Wild Cherry trees that were in our front lawn this winter (they had borers). We burned the smaller branches and now have a pile of ashes, is it alright to use the ashes on the garden area before planting? It will be between 2-3 months before we plant.
