Improve your seeding and transplanting results by planting at the safe and proper soil temperatures. This soil thermometer has a durable aluminum casing and reads in both Fahrenheit and Celcius. Transplant shock in seedlings can be avoided if the soil temperature is checked before planting. Most seeds require a warm soil to a depth of at least 8cm (3") in order to encourage germination. Planting by the calendar disregards weather variations from year to year. Timing planting based on soil temperature helps assure plants get a good start. Package has soil temperature ranges for a variety of vegetables on the back.
