Some people are afraid of getting into gardens, treating them like they need online courses in the craft, when really anybody can get their green thumbs cranking. We decided to pull together the easiest garden tricks and tips just for you to check out.
Recycle eggs to give your garden a calcium boost.
Depending on where you are your soil could be deficient in any number of properties. You can get soil test kits at a local garden store to get a rough read out of your nutrient profile. If you find yourself lacking in calcium we have just the tip for you! Also, if you have a nice and sturdy blender you can mix in your used egg shells and have them blended down to a fine powdery dust. Now sprinkle this dust atop your soil and you will be giving your garden an instant influx in calcium! However, if you can’t find a soil test kit there are also other signs of calcium deficiency that you can research to keep an eye on. We’ve always felt bad throwing out eggshell after eggshell and this technique gives us a chance to get rid of that poor feeling while not even needing an inventor kit to figure out how.
