There are many more uses for fireplace ashes than I ever knew. 1. Compost bin - only a little amongst the organic matter. 2. A light layer around plants can keep slugs away. 3. A tablespoon of ash to 1000 gallons of water for a pond will keep algae down.. 4. As a fertilizer. 5. Cleaning silver.
Can you give more ways to use ashes?

    You can have some in the garage. (wait for a long time before putting it in there in a fireproof metal container) use it for an icy driveway.

    My dad used to put them around his rose bushes after they were cool. I think he said they like the nitrates in the ash. He used to get roses almost 6 inches across. Just mix them in the soil.
