Builders sand makes a nice paste to stick the bricks together. I think this sort comes from the sea bed

Sharp sand has has sharper bits and better drainage.

I use it, you want sharp sand rather than builders sand.

It's probably not as weed seed free as GC sand should be, (but often isn't)

I've seen these cherries in many gardens I've worked in and visited. The bark gets sicker looking, leaves turn yellow and bits of branch die back. No, they're not dead, and may not be for years, but are hardly items to beautify the garden.

Dry in the west may not be as dry as East Anglia though Verdun. We are DRY

Lovely to look at but I think I'll stick with the cornus

Thanks Verdun

Am I right in think witch hazels aren't going to thrive in my dry alkalinity?

Looking back some 25 years, I think that's why I chose the cornus over the hamamelis.
