Put An Egg In It!

When I saw this article and read about the egg being used for fertilizer I thought is sounded great. Never tried it but a new fact I found interesting! Do you think it would help? In time the egg decomposes and helps with the fertilizing!

I use the egg shells to fertilize, that is what is needed, wasting a whole egg is a shame.

@Ganma7 I have a compost in the garden and I add a lot of things there, all discarded vegetables leaves, egg shells, potato and banana peels. I pulverize the eggshells and add to the water, so I also water the flower with fertilized water.

Not the entire egg. I pulverize eggshells since it takes too long for them to decompose to be of any use as a fertilizer. Banana peels are also good. same procedure. The first for calcium and the latter for potassium. Hope this helps.

I do the same, it is the calcium contained in the shell that is good to fertilize.

Thank you so much for your input. Very helpful! Is that called composting?

Oh. Do you use the whole egg? I know my mother crushes egg shells. I don't think she uses the whole egg...

They show it as the whole egg but I wondered about that too!

The shell needs to be ground up before adding to the pot but the rest of the boiled egg can be placed as you have it. As it decomposes it will fertilize the soil.

I agree! No chickens here but with the price of eggs chickens are a good idea. 4.00 a dozen here now

Eggshells are used often in the soil. Never heard of an entire egg.
