Save Eggshells for the Garden

  • Calcium-rich:
    Added directly to the garden, crushed eggshells add extra calcium to the soil. Tomatoes especially love added calcium and are less likely to suffer from blossom end rot.
  • Prevents snails and slugs:
    Slugs and snails have to crawl to the plant and are less likely to cross jagged shell pieces.
  • Compost bin:
    Enrich compost with calcium amendment
