You really cannot buy sand based on what it is called. I have to go look at
it and see it before I buy a few yards of it. The builders sand I bought
worked great in the garden, it was coarse. I have seen other "builder's
sand" that were nothing like it. It all depends on where it was aquired.

Is there really any reason why builders sand should not be used rather
than
the more expensive horticultural sand, in making up a soil mixture for
pots?
