Tip of the Week: Starting With Eggshells
Posted on October 09 2017
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! Join us this week, as we give you a neat tip on how you can start your next seedling with just an eggshell! From the experienced gardener to the newcomer, all know that seedlings can be particularly tricky, and you cannot plant them in the ground right away. Instead, you need to let them sprout a little bit, but what is the best way to go about it. While there are many different methods of doing so out there, using an eggshell is one of the best. This simple and eco-friendly trick is as easy as it seems. Take an eggshell (try to only cut a little bit off of the top of the egg), fill it with topsoil, and put your seed/seedling in there. Eggshells are rich in calcium, which will seep into the soil to give your new friend the boost that it needs, resulting in a stronger, healthier plant. Not only that, but once it’s time to move it to the garden, you don’t need to take it out of the shell; it will compost over time and give all other surrounding plants a calcium boost. Now, how’s that for a super food? For more gardening tips and tricks, be sure to check back to our blog every Monday for our latest Tip of the Week!
