Another gardener has also previously shared that his homemade fertilizer is completely free and makes your soil that much healthier.

in one postthe man demonstrated his method of making a rich fertilizer for garden soil, using ingredients that would normally end up in the trash can.

“Homemade Eggshell Calcium Fertilizer [for] breeding ground,” says the gardening expert.

“Don’t throw away eggshells,” he instructed her. Instead he said you should lay them out and dry them in the sun.

Once they were well dried, he chopped them up and put the eggshell mixture in a blender to break it down into even finer particles, creating a powder.

Finally, he sprinkled the powder on the ground and mixed it evenly to make an “eggshell calcium fertilizer.” The nutrient-rich soil is ready. [Give] Give it a try,” he urged his followers.
