I have to clean my chimney myself with borrowed brushes, as there are no contractors locally to do it. We only burn seasoned wood (ash, cherry, hazel, oak etc), not coal or peat. I already use the wood ashes, but could I use the soot in the garden? I could do a top dressing, or put it into the compost. Surely it's basically volatile plant oils mixed with very fine ash that has solidified on rising as smoke?

How much do you expect? Is it worth even thinking about it?
