Over the weekend at AT:NY, our plant therapist, Matt, shared a tip for using discarded eggshells as plant food. For those of us who can't easily compost, this is a great read...
The process is easy: You dry the shells in the oven and pulverize them in a food processor. Sprinkle the resulting powder around the base of your plants, and they get a healthy dose of calcium.
There is also a tip on feeding your plants with coffee grounds. And read the comments — helpful AT gardeners added lots of good ideas.
