In today’s Two Minute Tip, I’ll show you how we use eggshells to improve soil fertility. Eggshells contain a number of minerals that are essential to plant growth, most notably calcium, which plays an important role in the strength and thickness of plant cell walls. Sufficient calcium in the soil also helps prevent blossom end rot, which I’ll discuss later.
