Starting Sunflower Seeds In Eggshells

Why wait to plant seeds outside?  You can start sunflower seeds today, right inside your home.

Tall, beautiful sunflowers are a welcome sight around my chicken coop and run.

The sunflowers add a burst of color to our landscape and some needed shade for my ladies.

Although sunflowers grow fairly quickly, I just don't want to wait.  So, I got a head start this year, and you can too!

Read How To Start Sunflower Seeds In Eggshells  and the best time to start seeds indoors here.  It is my recent article for Community Chickens.

No expensive pots or lights are needed!

And please, gain some knowledge from my past failure.  I certainly have.

Happy Spring Planting! 


  1. Dear Lori Leigh ... such a sweet and simple idea for springtime. Evening Blessings ♥ Teri

  2. Hi Lori. I do my egg shell nursery every year. Just finished spritzing mine in fact. I really like egg shells because you don't have to touch the stems while planting and avoid the risk of damping (or dampening?). I crumble the shells a little and plant them all together. Tomatoes love it.

    Happy gardening!

    1. Hi Kimberly. You're right, adding the crushed shell in the ground is great for the plants. Happy planting!

  3. What a great idea! I love sunflowers so much!
