These soil thermometers are frequently used in the agriculture and horticulture industries to check temperatures of soil and compost. You’ll therefore find them referred to as a soil temperature gauge, compost thermometer, propagator/soil thermometer and even soil temperature probes. They’re all the same.
Soil thermometers and temperature probes are very easy to use; simply push the soil thermometer into the ground and read the displayed temperature prior to planting.
Or if using for composting, monitor the temperature of your compost by pushing the compost temperature probe into your compost heap to read the temperature of your compost.
It’s necessary to measure soil temperature to evaluate whether soil has enough uptake of water and nutrients to plant.
All of our soil thermometers come with an easy to locate knob or top to prevent you from losing your soil thermometer once you’ve placed it in the soil to measure ground temperature. Our soil thermometers are also available and ready to despatch from our UK warehouse.
