7 Steps To Successful Eggshell Gardening

May 12, 2023

Eggshell gardening is a creative and sustainable way to use eggshells as small planters for your seedlings. Here are the steps to create your own eggshell garden:

  1. Start by cracking open the top of the eggshell, making sure to preserve as much of the shell as possible. You can use a small spoon or knife to carefully crack the top of the shell.
  2. Gently rinse out the eggshell and let it dry completely.
  3. Fill the eggshell with potting soil, leaving some space at the top for your seedling.
  4. Add your seedling to the eggshell, making sure it’s planted securely in the soil.
  5. Water your seedling and place the eggshell in a sunny spot.
  6. As your seedling grows, make sure to water it regularly and provide it with the necessary nutrients.
  7. Once your seedling has outgrown the eggshell, you can transplant it into a larger pot or directly into the ground.

Eggshell gardening is a fun and easy way to start seedlings and can be a great activity for kids. Plus, it’s a sustainable way to repurpose something that would otherwise go to waste. —Vita Daily
