Plant your Seeds in Egg Shells

Plant your Seeds in Egg Shells

When growing flower plants from seeds, start them in halves of shells from hard-boiled eggs. When the time comes to transplant them, they can be easily removed by allowing the dirt in the shell to become hard and then breaking off the shell, whereupon the plant is placed in the ground.

Use the egg boxes to hold them. Two large seeds such as nasturtiums and sweet peas can be planted in one shell, and four seeds of the smaller varieties.

Do not remove the egg shells

You don't have to remove the shells. Most plant roots will grow right through them and the shells make great fertilizer!
