    Probably been asked before but is there any use for plaster which is out of its expiry date by some years ? Skip ?

    It can be broken up, sprinkled and and raked into hard clay of garden soil, it improves and lightens the texture into a workable crumb.

    It must not be used in the base of concrete work as the sulphur content attacks it (happens when included in builders rubble used as hardcore)
