Horticultural sand

Post by Perlasca on Mon Oct 28, 2013 5:33 pm

Following on from (much) earlier post - I have found 25kg bags of "sabbia di fiume" at Leroy Merlin in Pescara.  E3.25 per bag.  I think it is actually for building use but hopefully works just as well in starting to "unclag" my soil.  I'll let you know if all my plants keel over having got their feet in amongst it:)

Did mean to follow up on your post myself. We recently had a delivery of building sand and I'm sure it's river sand, very gritty, but ideal I think. I must try to use some for potting of one or two plants to see if it's ok before I put a lot more of the 2nd veg garden...

I have always been a fan of "Burke's Backyard", a great Aussie gardener who has always given excellent practical advice. Look at what he says about top dressing Burke's Backyard as he has always been in favour of river sand for the garden.
