Here are a few tricks for using egg shells to help improve your garden:

Girl on Bike: Using egg shells in the garden

Each time you crack an egg open, instead of tossing the shell into the trash, drop it into an open container that you keep in the fridge. (Ive always saved my shells, but my friend Susan suggested keeping them in the fridge works beautifully.) When the container is full, crush the shells into small bits and sprinkle them around the base of your plants. The sharp eggshells will deter slugs, snails, and other bugs from nibbling on your garden and add a touch of calcium to the soil

"Regrow roses!!! My neighbor has a row of roses, which he took as cuttings. I asked how he took them. He simply plunges the cuttings into the ground. But his secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting cuttings, he pushes the bottom end into a small potato, which he believes keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but his row of allotment roses is proof it works. (quote from link)"
