Garden grit and sand can help to transform your outdoor space. Whether it’s used to help support your soil or to sow seeds, garden grit is versatile. It’s also perfect for mixing with garden soil when potting alpine plants.

Garden sand and grit are essential when growing seeds – simply top your new seeds with a fine layer of grit to stop the seeds being washed away.

The Homebase range of Royal Horticultural Society garden sands and grit come with suggested uses on the pack. Horticultural sharp sand, for example, can be added to clay soils to break them up, and help with planting and drainage. Horticultural grit sand, on the other hand, mixes well with compost for free-draining potting material and can help aerate heavy soils. Shop sand and grit at Homebase now.
