Soil Thermometers

soil, thermometer, thermometers, garden, vegetables, tranplanting, seeds, planting

Every gardener wants to get their garden off to a great start. An important element in both seed starting, and when setting out young transplants, is to have the ideal soil temperatures. Seeds sprout faster, and the germination rate is much higher, when soil temperatures are ideal. Low soil temperatures can cause transplant shock, and can also stunt young transplants.

Use a soil thermometer to improve seeding and transplant results.

Just insert this soil thermometer 2-3 inches into the soil, wait three minutes, then, read the results.

Ideal soil temperature varies among different vegetable plants. See Soil Temperature  Chart.
