Expired supplements provide garden nutrients

Expired calcium and herbal supplements (not vitamins) don't need to be thrown out.

Bury a few expired calcium tablets or capsules around tomatoes, peppers and eggplants.  The additional calcium may help prevent blossom end rot.

Herbal supplements can be added to your compost bin where they will break down along with the other organic materials.

Remember to save the bottles and reuse when harvesting seeds as seed storage containers.

Waste not, want not.
Be well and happy gardening!

  1. That makes perfect sense, but the thought had never occurred to me. Thanks for the tip.
