For a compilation of way to much information on biochar check out  http://culturalhealingandlife.com.www413.your-server.de/index.php?/forums/topic/50-biochar/

It does have a section in it about use and charging.  I like to think of it as shelters for bio life and drainage.  I like it to help maintain.

Yes just putting eggshells in the garden is not a quick return.  So try this.  It is a practice in Natural Farming!

Here is the video that inspired me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sU5TXvjsTv8

I don't necessarily agree with the video's assertion that a calcium deficiency is always the cause of blossom end rot. I've heard from several master gardeners that it's often caused by a plant's inability to uptake the calcium that is already present in the soil. Take that for what you will, I just thought it was worth mentioning.



Yes, the reason for a deficiency is not always due to a lack of the mineral.  If only it was so simple.  Calcium issues are typically indoor problems or in plant beds that would naturally reduce the amount of available calcium over time.  Often seen where people put in bag soils and those soils become depleted of calcium over time without amendments/inputs.

Have a great day, hope that helps at all or just preaching to the choir for the most part!

This is amazing work.  I have worked with mushrooms to help clean up toxic sites but this is wow!

I have heard of those but don't know much about them. I guess I assumed they were toxic somehow but they must not be. I'll look into them,.as that's a great idea! Thank you so much!!!

I think something is eating your roots or the soil is too wet/compact.  Hard to really tell from here.  Potentially a mold/mildew but I suspect root issues from pest to make up of soil/nutrition.
