A micro aggregate which makes an ideal component for plants with complex and small root systems. Sand is an age old soil amendment that provides a superb composition when mixed in well!
Sand absorbs very little water because it’s particles are relatively large. It also helps to reduce 'clumping' around roots - making it easy to work with and take off when repotting a plant. Intricate and sensitive roots will cling around the soil mix and sand will help to create a perfect gradient for their own drainage and support. Let’s not forget, it’s great for fungus gnat control too!
We love working with Sand and we don't just mean making castles.
