Top Dressing - Silver Sand


Product Details


Silver Sand Top Dressing: This sand is light silver and makes a vibrant top dressing around succulents. Top dressings give arrangements a polished look and mitigate rot by acting as a barrier between leaves and soil. They come in resealable bags that allow for easy pouring around your plants.

Top dressings are now available in two convenient sizes: 0.5 lb and 1 lb bags. The 0.5 lb bag is enough to cover three 3.0" pots (as shown above) to a 0.5" depth, while the 1 lb bag will cover six 3.0" pots to a 0.5" depth. We recommend a 0.5" depth of top dressing to keep dirt from showing through or being exposed during watering.

With a single 1 lb bag, we were able to dress sixteen 2" pots!
