Save Your Eggshells for the Garden

Deter Slugs and SnailsEggshells are a great addition to your gardening plans. Here's how to incorporate them to boost soil, deter pests, and (hopefully!) increase yields.

 

Crush the shells into small bits, roughly 1/8″ in size. This is an excellent job for kids. Just give them a rolling pin or wooden spoon and let them go to town. Sprinkle these crushed shells around the base of your plants. The sharp eggshells will deter slugs, snails, and other soft-bodied bugs from nibbling on your garden

Eggshells to Improve Soil

Eggshells add calcium to the soil. Calcium is especially appreciated by tomato plants. Add a small scoop of crushed shells directly to individual planting holes when you’re planting your garden.
