Saw these in Morrisons for £3 a bag. You're right, the colour is a little odd. I'd call it dark purple rather than blue. I'm going to buy all the same as they do look classy

I got the same ones form Homebase last year and after a day of heavy rain some of the slates turned white and brown.

Depending on how many you want its worth a trip to your local gravel merchant who can deliver in bulk, prices vary obviously, but a lot less grief having a lorry hy-ab the bulk bag into your garden (if accessible) .. Saw the Morrisons ones myself and were powdered grey until washed when they seemed a dark bluey Black or more bluey anthracite to me , the issue I have with most of these bagged versions is the size I want bigger pieces to start with as they are bound to crunch down and split a bit over time.

Got some of these, they ARE big pieces. Some smaller pieces but mostly 60-90mm long.

Noticed the colour at the checkout, manager opened a bag and took a handful to wash in a sink - still black.

I bought a few bags of these 11 months and 5 days ago ( yep ok so I posted them on here that's how I know ) and they were blue then and are still blue today

Hmmm, just spent the last 3 hours measuring all of mine, I can confirm they are all the same size still, although about 19 have migrated next door to start a new community

Thanks, !

Saw the same bag outside Tesco yesterday and as a bag was split I picked one out that was quite the chunk, so maybe they are are better size than ive seen in previous years.. Unfortunately I think the better half has migrated towards beach pebbles...
