Digging in the Dirt

Sharp drainage needed

Recommended Posts

I wanted to try and grow a few tropical plants this year that need sharp drainage, and I heard that if I add sand to my dirt, that would do the trick.  However, they warned me not to use "playground " sand because that could start to clump together and make the drainage worse than if I had not added it at all.


Does anyone use sand to improve their drainage?  Are there better alternatives than sand?
