Shell on Earth
Checking local availability

Royal Mail's maximum delivery weight is 30kg - this means we can only send a maximum of 2 large bags in one order. 


Recycled crushed, washed and dried whelk shells.

This is ideal for the 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. 

About Shell on Earth
They're a small family business run by husband and wife team Jordan & Caryl Andrews. They take the crushed whelk shells generated at their family’s seafood processing factory and recycle them for use in gardens and landscaping. 

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

This is a natural product from the sea and Shell on Earth does its best to remove any foreign material. All the packaging is recyclable. The white filler is made from vegetable starch and is compostable.

Packaged with eco-friendly materials and healthy, strong plants.


Really impressed with this if this don’t deter the snails and slugs I don’t know what will but it’s sharp enough and more rigid than normal egg shells so I’m hoping for the best.
