Nitrates are produced in soil by the actions of some sorts of bacteria on things like urine which contain a lot of nitrogen.
Many years ago this was used as the way to make potassium nitrate for gunpowder.
Of course you also need something to supply the potassium.
The ash left behind when you burn wood contains quite a lot of potassium carbonate- known as potash.
The reaction of the nitrate in the soil with potash gives potassium nitrate.
You can leach that out of the mixture of soil and ashes and dry it out. It's not very pure but you can clean it up by recystalisation.

I don't know of anyone who has actually done this- it doesn't seem like a very nice job.

1. BUY IT!!! Or else, it will not work!
2. How 'not very pure'? Short answer, no.
3. Not sure, you might need to search the internet for that one.

Your 'bp' is going to be about 70%-75% potassium nitrate, you need to have A LOT of it. I doubt that any other method is going to get you enough.

If you can't buy it then I think you are better off not trying; there's more to like than gunpowder and you are likely to get into major trouble if you start blowing things up.

It makes me nervous when people who obviously don't have a clue about it are trying to make explosives.

Exactly. In a forum like this it is hard to tell what are the right hands and the wrong hands. I have been getting more and more nervous about Naufal, but, I have already been called paranoid here.
