Shell on Earth Crushed Shell Plant Topping


Repurposed crushed and washed whelk shells from Wales.   These are regenerated shells repurposed from a small family run seafood business. The crushed whelk shells are generated at the family’s seafood processing factory and recycled for use in gardens and landscaping. 

The packaging is recyclable. The white filler is made from vegetable starch and is compostable.

It's estimated that 5000 tonnes of waste shells are generated in the UK fishing industry every year. Shell on Earth are proud to not only reduce waste output from the factory, but also to help support a circular economy by utilising 100% of the whelks they process.

This bag size is ideal for indoor plant pot and terrarium top dressing. Great for cacti, succulents and most houseplants. Alternatively you can mix the shells into soil or compost to increase drainage. We suggest a coverage of 20-30mm. When watering your plants, ensure a slow and gentle pour to avoid soil rising above the shells.

This bags weighs 3.5kg approx and measures 14 x 8 x 20cms.
