    how do you crack so it will work? And wash them before planting..... When do you start such an idea? I am excited about this idea. I would appreciate the help. thnx

  • Kathryn A. Rogers-Wilson

    I did it just as I regularly crack an egg, just try for slightly higher on the egg, I had to shake the last 1 out of the shell but it worked. I thought about putting a hole in the opposite end and blowing it out of the cracked end but my inner-nurse said too unsanitary for my group. I will do that when it is only for my breakfast.

    as for when. . . to start I plan to fill the shells about Feb 15 and they should be garden ready by March 30. Be sure to crack the shell as you plant it. . .a light squeeze should do it.


    Thanks for your help. Great ideas. Can't wait to start in feb. Happy New Year Too!!!!

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!).
