Oyster shells
    #1946255 - 09/24/03 12:07 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I have read that adding crushed oyster shells to my casting mix inproves the growth of mushies and allso helps to keep the castig soil from coming out when havesting but i cant find them anywhere by me so i was wondering if there is anything special about buying them crushed or if i can just buy some oysters from the supermarket and just wash the shells and put them in a bag and crush them up with a hammer or something and would that work the same

Hey Twitch-- I got my oyster shells from a plant nursery. It is made by bandini. Works good but does not absorb like calcium carbonate.

Crushing up store bought ones would be quite pricey.  A 50 lb bag of shell at feed stores (it's for your chickens, if they ask) is  about 7$US.  More than you'd ever need :smile:
