This is a great way to make a Fertilizer out of things we use regularly.I use this on my Potted Plants.I crush the empty Egg Shells with the Tea Leaves left over from making Tea---thrice a week. I spread this mixture at the base of my Plants near the Stems.I then mix this into the Soil gently,using a Trowel to gently turn it over .Finally I end by watering the Plants to help this Mixture to seep in.My Plants seem love this Home made Fertilizer and are growing pretty strong,healthy and happy.
