Tomatoes need calcium to achieve their full flavor potential, and calcium is often greatly lacking in our soils. 95% of a dry eggshell is calcium carbonate. When planting your tomato plants crush up (to powder) about 4 or 5 egg shells and put them in the bottom of the hole. Then plant your tomato on top. They'll provide calcium and prevent blossom end rot.

This is a project that enthralls and intrigues everyone who sees it; you can build one too; just pick up a couple of coir lined hanging baskets, fill with soil, wire them together and stick some Sempervivum chicks on the coir. After a year, they will fill in and be totally covered. What a great use for your succulent collection!
