You’ve heard that eggshells are good for your plant, but do you know how to make the calcium soluble? In this class, we’ll go over fertilizer additions and what they provide, as well as how to create your own potting mixes. Each student will leave with a freshly potted plant, a mortar and pestle, a coffee bag of soil, and a small container of organic liquid fertilizer. Your houseplants will thank you and your tomatoes next year will be huge!
