  • I wondered if I can use pea gravel instead of grit.

    Thank you in advance

    For what?

    I find it hard to find  grit. The last lot came from an aquarium supplies shop.

    I've had that one in the past Lb but nobody seems to stock it round here now. Delivery charges would be high for that weight of stuff

    Delivery is free nutcutlet.

    Is it? I'll have to look at that. Thank you.

    I've got some tagged RHS at the moment, bought locally, but it's a bit chunky.

    I order mine from here as the aquarium stuff was even more expensive and I don't want to steal it from my fish! image

    I ended up buying a sack of grit and seive it for fine stuff. I can't get fine grit round here at all.

    Sharp sand is just as good and you buy it from builders suppliers.

    sharp sand is fine when that's what you want, I often use it. But I also want horticultural grit which is somewhat less fine, good for overwintering the cold germinators and putting a layer on top. I don't find sand so good for that
