We were pretty excited when we first came across Shell on Earth. As keen (obsessive?) plant growers, both indoor and out, we're always on the look out for innovative new products which will aid us in our constant repotting of plants. This piqued our interest for a couple of reasons. Firstly, these are a pretty great alternative to grit or small pebbles that can be used as both a drainage layer, or a decorative topper (or mixed in with your soil if you need a gritter soil). Secondly, these make a natural weed and pest repellent, marvellous news for anyone trying to grow veg (or hostas...) at the moment. And thirdly the whelk shells used to make Shell on Earth are a bi-product from the whelk industry in Wales. It's estimated over 5000 tonnes of waste shells are generated by the fishing industry each year. Shell on Earth contribute nothing towards that. Any non shell organic waste they have is turned into biofuel. 

Each hand tied paper bag of whelk shells contains approx 3.5kg of shells. We use them a lot on cacti and succulents but they are suitable for use with all plants.

Next dispatch: Tuesday 19th December. Orders will be upgraded to Royal Mail 24/First Class. Very likely to arrive before Christmas but we can't guarantee it.

Delivery Update December 2021We're a small family run business and we've recently had our first baby. This means orders are taking a little bit longer to dispatch then normal. We're aiming to do an order run every three or four days throughout December, but please be patient if it's a day or two longer than this. Please also be aware that Covid is still causing some delays within the courier network, particularly with Royal Mail, so the odd order may take slightly longer to arrive once it's been dispatched. Most are taking the usual 3-5 days though.


Standard delivery within the UK Mainland is £4.50. Orders usually arrive in 3-5 working days (but can take longer during busy periods - please allow ten working days). Delivery to all other UK locations can take an extra 1-2 days. All UK orders above £75.00 qualify for free delivery. For small items (cards, tea towels etc) that can be sent as a large letter, postage is just £1.50.

We also offer free local delivery within the SE4 and SE15 postcodes. This is available to select during checkout.

We have temporarily stopped shipping internationally due to the mess that is Brexit.

We want you to be delighted with your order, but if for any reason you are not then you can return your order to us within 30 days of receipt for a full refund. Please send to:
