Don’t waste eggshells!

Here are five ways to use eggshells in your garden this gardening season….

  1. As a natural fertilizer: Crushed eggshells are a great source of calcium, which is essential for healthy plant growth. Simply crush the eggshells into small pieces and sprinkle them around the base of your plants to provide a slow-release source of calcium.
  2. Pest control: Sprinkling crushed eggshells around the base of your plants can also deter pests like slugs, snails, and cutworms. The sharp edges of the eggshells will irritate the soft bodies of these pests and keep them away from your plants.
  3. Seed starters: You can also use eggshells as a natural container for starting seeds. Simply crack the top off the egg, empty the contents, and rinse out the eggshell. Then, fill the eggshell with soil and plant your seed inside. Once the seed has germinated, you can transplant the entire eggshell into your garden.
  4. Composting: Eggshells are also a great addition to your compost pile. They break down quickly and add valuable calcium and other minerals to your compost.
  5. Soil amendment: Crushed eggshells can also be added directly to your garden soil to improve drainage and provide calcium and other nutrients to your plants. Simply mix the crushed eggshells into the top layer of soil around your plants.
