I suggest you break the eggs around the base of plants or trees that seem to be in poor health. Use a hose jet to thoroughly disperse and dilute the eggs contents. Perhaps not suitable for all plants but very good in soils that are excessively alkaline or excessively drained of nutrients because of irrigation. The egg's high sulphur content is very helpful here.
