What Is Horticultural Sand?
Horticultural sand or gardening sand is made from crushed quartz, smashed granite or sandstone. It has a very gritty texture containing both large and small grains of sand. Gardening sand is often used to improve soil drainage, especially clay soils which don't drain as efficiently.
Horticultural sand can also be used as a starting medium for starting seeds or roots without using soil. Because the texture of gardening sand is so much looser than soil it actively aids the promotion of germination. The air circulation provided can also be beneficial to young seedlings.
