no2 Plaster Sand     
Good for making a well draining soil mix for desert and chaparral species, and with compost for acid well draining soil for Azaleas. This is sharp sand, which is best for stimulating root growth, not rounded beach sand. It has a mix of coarse and fine grains. Perhaps a little coarse for play sandboxes but great for sand castles. It will make potting soil mixes heavy.
