BBC g.w. used sand in compost - why?
Norfolk, United Kingdom
Hi! I'm sorry to be such a worryguts, but when the presenters planted their carrot seeds, Joe said "everyone uses sand in their compost". Why is this? Is it for better drainage, to keep the compost moist or to save money? Sorry to be so thick, but I've never done that, I always thought sand was to be abhorred in the gardening world......
Shows how little I know! Could someone enlighten me, pretty please? Lol! Thanks!
