Did you know? Creative uses for eggshells in the garden.
Did you know, eggshells are good for more than just bone health – they’re also very beneficial for your garden and indoor plants!
- Deter pests from your garden. Sprinkle crushed eggshells around freshly-planted seeds to help keep away birds, slugs and snails. Eggshells may also keep the deer from eating tender plant leaves.
- Grow more tomatoes. Placing eggshells in the soil near tomatoes will help prevent blossom end rot.
- Enrich your compost pile. Eggshells added to your compost pile decompose quickly and deliver valuable calcium and other minerals to the soil.
- Feed indoor plants. Dilute crushed eggshell powder with water for a calcium-rich plant food.
