Q.

eggshells crushed for soil/garden — how to put them in?

Zone 11722 | Anonymous added on May 24, 2019 | Answered

ok,hello..I try to keep it small and growing hot peppers only as space allows where I live,  so they are still inside in a warm room with light, and the plants are about 3 inches and look nice and green. I'm following the seed packet instructions, but had a bigger container garden in the past and did pretty good. Ok so i'm zooming around looking for advice about egg shells crushed for soil but its funny no one is talking about how to use them or to insert them. One video i saw of a farmer it looks like he turned it into powder -- big garden... I just would like to know how do I insert the eggshells after I crush them up? Lay them on top of container soil, or push them down under the soil? Thats all i need for now...thank you in advance/jeff.

Generally, you will crush them up as fine as possible, and mix this with soil before you plant. You can crush them a little less and apply on top, but they will be a lot slower to break down.
