Avoiding A Spring Cold By Measuring Soil Temperature
By: Pam Beck
Eager gardeners often forget that the slowly raising temperature of the soil is a more important environmental factor for successful springtime gardening than fickle air temperatures. Measuring soil temperature can help ensure successful transplanting. Seeds and transplants planted during optimum soil temps quickly develop healthy roots necessary to take up precious water and nutrients. Check your local weather channel or state government’s websites for current soil temperature information applicable to your area.
