[Video] How to Use Eggshells for a Better Garden

Eggshells contain important nutrients that can help keep your garden healthy – and they are a free source of fertilizer after you eat their contents! Here’s the best way to use them in your garden.

One of the minerals that is essential for the health of your garden plants is calcium. Eggshells are very high in calcium, and can help feed your plants, and reduce problems like blossom-end rot in your tomatoes.

However, the calcium in eggshells is not readily available to your plants right away.

This quick video shows you how to prepare them and what to do to make the nutrients they contain more available to your plants, so your garden can enjoy the benefits of this cheap and simple source of fertilizer.

We hope you have enjoyed our videos and articles over the past several months! Although there is not a lot of gardening activity to do in the winter, we will soon start planning for 2016’s garden, so stay tuned after Christmas, as we’ll have some great tips for getting your spring garden started in the weeks to come.

We’ll be taking a short blogging break to enjoy the holidays with our families, but be sure to check back after the 1st of the year for more helpful garden guidance!

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
