Great for alpine gardens 

Alpine grit is a versatile tool for alpine and rock gardeners: it can be used to top flower beds, which will provide support to alpine plants that need dry conditions to thrive.   

Promotes healthy soil 

Horticultural Alpine Grit can be mixed into soil to create air pockets, in turn improving drainage and preventing plants or young seedlings from becoming waterlogged. It’s ideal for use in beds and containers.  

Helps deter slugs 

Although tough to eliminate entirely, slugs hate harsh textures such as grit, making it a fantastic deterrent for the plant eating blighters. A generous covering of alpine grit to troubled areas of the garden will make a difference.
