Biodegradable seed containers

Get your garden started early by planting your seeds in eggshells indoors before the weather permits outdoor growth. There are several reasons why eggshells are the perfect pot for this, but the biggest is that they are cheap (free really), full of calcium to give your seedlings that extra boost, and easy to plant in the garden when ready (the shell can stay on!).

This is so smart. I bet using coconut shells would work great as well, but the egg shells you can just stick in the ground with the plant and add a calcium boost to the soil.

Terrarium DIY - materials needed: jar, shovel, assorted plants, potting soil, small stones, activated charcoal.

Plant a seedling in an empty eggshell. When time to plant in the ground just cracked the shell some and plant the plant and eggshell. Eggshell is great for the soil. (Put a small hole in bottom of shell for drainage for watering the seedling).

Alternative Gardning: Planting seeds in eggshells

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. 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.
