Eggshells in the garden: deter slugs and are a great source of calcium for fast growing plants!

Saving Egg Shells for the Garden Almost of the eggshell is calcium carbonate, which is important to fast growing plants such as tomatoes, because the plant depletes the surrounding soil of calcium which is important to cell growth in the plant.

~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. Theyll provide calcium and prevent blossom end rot~
