What Do You Have To Do?

When you plant in pots, all you have to do is place a full uncracked egg at the bottom of the plant and cover with soil. You can do the same for garden plants that require relatively large holes for planting just drop the egg into the bottom of the hole. P

For other plants you may want to use just the cracked eggshells. These work just as well as the full egg and you would just incorporate them into the soil that you are planting your seedlings or seeds in. Plants that love eggshells are tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and any plants that a susceptible to snails or slugs.To make it easier just start your seedlings in eggshells, and then plant the whole thing into the ground. Here are 6 more reasons you should start using eggshells in your garden.

How Does It Work?

As time passes, the egg will have no choice but to decompose. As it does this it will provide natural fertilizer and nutrients for your seedling or plant. Nutrients found in egg shells include calcium, nitrogen and phosphoric acid.
