    General Information

    Preventive plant protection

    Using shells as mulch material offers a whole range of advantages: Once applied to the beds, they serve their purpose for years because they are mineral, so they are not broken down by microorganisms to form humus. (Before spreading, humus-consuming perennials should therefore first be provided with a good layer of compost). They do not contain weed seeds, do not fix nitrogen (like bark), and do not become fungal (like wood chips). The light-colored surfaces of the shells also reflect light: in the dark season, the winter and evergreen plants in the garden benefit most from this, including some herbs, such as rosemary, thyme, or savory. On the surface, the shells dry out quickly after a rain - this helps prevent fungal diseases on the plants' root necks, while a crumbly, well-aerated and lively soil forms under the mulch layer. Slugs often avoid the dry shell surface, which is sharp for them - but since this depends on many other conditions in the garden, we can't guarantee that. One more tip for garden design: shells can also form a very nice path surface.
