Grits & Sand

Grits and sand can really alter your garden. At Aylings Garden Centre, we stock sand and grit for any use!  

Sharp sand can help you out with planting and drainage by adding it to clay soils to break it up, for example. Besides that, it's ideal for alpine plants when it is mixed with garden soil. This whilst grit sand is a perfect match for compost for free-draining potting material and helps oxygenate heavy soil. 

Besides that, grit and sand are indispensable when it comes to growing seeds as topping up your seeds with it can prevent the seeds from getting washed away.
