(No, I am not talking about that vegetable.)
When you do gardening, why buy a lot of plastic pots to germinate and grow young plants and throw them out when unwanted? That is not very green, plastic pots take ever so long time to decompose. Instead, you can use egg shells, they will decompose, you can easily get them right from your kitchen (If you have any eggs), and the egg shells are full of nutrition, it will make young plants grow healthy and strong.
So, why not use egg shells?
Step 1: Things you will need...
- Soil or even better, compost (I used compost that is just sitting in my garden.)
- Waterproof markers
- Or any thing you think it will suit your egg plants!
Step 2: Eat the eggs!
You will need the egg shells for the egg plants, and be careful not to break the egg shells too much!
Step 3: Clean the egg shells...
If you don't clean the eggs, it might go moldy and kill the young plant.
Step 4: Make drain holes
Making drain holes can be very trick to do without breaking the egg shells, I used a drill to make the holes. You will have to be very gentle when drilling the egg shells...
You don't have to bother drilling the holes in the egg shells if you cannot do it successfully, you can just leave it undrilled, but make sure you don't waterlog the egg plants...
