Will Ashes From Fireplace Harm My Forsythia Bush Or Other Plants

Question From: L. Schultz - Collinsville, Oklahoma, United States
Q: Will my Fireplace ashes harm my Forsythia bush?

A: Depends on the pH of your soil and if you burn untreated wood. Wood ashes are high in calcium and will raise the pH of your soil. You should have your soil tested before applying it and request a recommendation for application. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
