Seedlings of cucumbers in the eggshell</a>

Grow self-seedling cucumbers -A task that everyone can do, however, to ensure that the seedlings are quality, strong and healthy, you need to know some tricks. A very convenient and effective way to grow cucumber seedlings is to use an egg shell

You will need

  • - eggshell-
  • - seeds of cucumber-
  • - pallets from under the eggs-
  • - soil-
  • - a film.



Dry the eggshell thoroughly and pour in it a pre-prepared soil with the addition of peat.


In each shell, place 2 cucumber seeds and sprinkle them with a substrate.


Shells with seeds put in pallets, pour and cover with a film. Closely monitor the moisture of the soil, since a small amount of soil in the shell quickly dries up quickly.


After about five days, the seeds give seedlings. As soon as sprouts appear, the film should be removed. After two weeks (14 days), the seedlings can be planted in the open ground (if the weather is warm and the land has warmed up properly). To do this, you need to crush the shell carefully so that it bursts. Then, together with the shell, the seedlings are planted in a garden bed and buried.
