May depend on local store stock.

Heat op its in the groceries section but doubt they will be in stock but no harm in trying thanks

Had it at Bolton Middlebrook today for £1

Great as an aquarium substrate, much better than gravel.

I bought the Argos sand and can't really agree. I personally think it's too fine for aquarium substrate - It needs to be
frequently agitated and cleaned and growing plants in it is next to impossible. Also it has a tendency to get caught under cleaning sponges etc and scratch the glass.

Wish I'd stuck with gravel tbh!

I dont think so play sand is more softer

My understanding is that building sand is small grained/soft/smooth sand suited to making mortar for things like brick laying combined with cement.

Sharp sand is more granular/rougher used for bedding in things like paving/block paving. Due to grain size it is less likely to be washed away than building sand.

WIth both of those they are raw sand and therefore tend to be "dirty" and likely to stain kids clothing and be rougher.

Play sand is fine washed sand and therefore clean and less abrasive to kids.

An alternative maybe the sand used to fill the gaps in block paving ( silver sand ) especially if you get it from a builders merchants as opposed to a a big name DIY shed.

If you buy less than £40 worth of goods you get punished with a £4 minimum basket charge even if you collect. That is a disgusting attack on the poor and should be illegal.

building sand will give kids a rash it's best to use play sand for sand pits

I use playsand in my aquaria and the plants love it... Waaaay cheaper than the "proper" stuff the fish shops sell.

Why not order £40 and return some item on the door simple

Thanks OP, added some to my grocery delivery. I did see it in my local yesterday for £1 but I only had a basket so couldn't carry it.

tesco or wickes?

Surely it's almost impossible to spend less than £40 on a weekly grocery shop anyway?

Plants don't love sand because all the 'crap' just stays on top, there's literally no nutrients in it for the roots. I learnt the hard way when loads of beautful looking plants I tranferred all browned and withered

^Same here. I trialled a small ratio of builder's sharp sand with compost about 50/50, yet plants did flowered but turned brown & withers from the stalks up. Can't imagine what the roots will look like. oO

Probably too much salt & lime in the dredged up sea sand. Easy enough to tell, add a little vinegar to some sand and if it 'fizzes' then it contains lime particles. Bettered to stick to horticultural lime free grade stuff.

Got 4 if these at the Tesco in Swindon (Ocotal Way) Ferrets are going to live their new sand pit!!

I got 5 bags from tesco in seacroft leeds, there were on on the shelf but I asked and they brought them out of the back heat added.
