Anyone know if this idea is legit?

So I found a blog post about someone using eggshells as seed starters.

Does this actually work?
Are the shells biodegradable?

No reason eggshells should not work. Might want to drill drainage with a dental or Dremel tool in the bottom of the shell and use quality planting soil.

Great idea actually. Might want to try a holder for them like the egg carton they came with? Thanks for sharing this.

Please PM a perfect two egg ommelete with scalions, cream cheese and San Franciso Bay baby shrimp. And why not bacon bits. You may do what you wish with the egg shells.

And yes and of course eggshells are biodegradable. Birds that lay them have been leaving them behind milleniums before we made appearance on the planet.

Egg shell is a good fertilizer as the majority (93%) of egg shell is calcium carbonate.
