Q.I Am Trying To Get A Start From A Fruiting Quince. Your Instructions Say To Use Horticultural Sand. I Can’t Find It Anywhere.

I live in the Pacific Northwest and am trying to get some starts from my fruiting quince. Your instructions say to use “horticultural sand”. I have looked all over the internet and can hardly find a reference to it, let alone someone selling it. I have seen all kind of bags of sand, but they are usually 20lb bags. I don’t need that much. Can you steer me in the right direction?

Just go to a home improvement store and buy builders sand, sharp sand or grit. It doesn't cost much and comes in manageable sizes. Or you can use perlite.
