    The egg shells when crushed raises the pH of the soil which is desirable for certain plants and aids in drainage of clay like soils.

    Actually .. organic waste does go into the Manure Pile (we do compost it .. )
    IT is definitely a rich fertilizer after it ages properly ..

    I do not understand the question, but my mother puts eggshells in the dirt of her house plants, or she does something like that. I do not have plants, I try to avoid nature.

    I have generally used peat pots to start them. I will try the egg shell idea, thanks for the idea.

    And after they sprout and are planted, we use used coffee ground as a natural bug repellant.

    But my family after the war used them with chicory to stretch the coffee grounds. The only coffee that came close to that muddy flavor was Luzzianne.

    Yes, my mom always used them to start her "Creeping Charlies". It sometimes smelled a little like sulfur, but it seemed to work!

    Sort of. I bury coffee grounds, eggshells and fruit and veggie peels in between my plants in the garden. Soil gets better every year.

    I put water with my leftover coffee in the pot and water them with that as well. Roses seem to really enjoy a "cup of joe" now and again!

    we tried that this year. They are growing great right now, it is still a bit too early to put them in the ground.

    We often wash the egg shells and bake them in the oven on low temp for a few minutes and then feed them to the birds. The calcium helps the mother birds' eggs.
