Eggshells make perfect seed starters.  For the last several years I have sowed my seeds in broken eggshells filled with potting soil and a couple leaves from yarrow, moringa, clover or alfalfa.  As soon as 5 leaves appeared on the seedlings, the whole container was dropped into the ground. There was no worry about hurting the plant’s tiny roots which grow easily as the shell disintegrates. Strong stems and leaves develop as the calcium gets absorbed by the plant.
