Know Your Soil Temperatures

Soil temperature is the factor that drives germination, blooming, composting, and a variety of other processes. Learning how to check soil temperature will help the Australian gardener know when to start sowing seeds. Knowledge of what is soil temperature also helps define when to transplant and when to begin a compost bin. Determining current soil temperatures is easy and will help you grow a more productive and pleasurable garden.


What is Soil Temperature? So what is soil temperature? Soil temperature is simply the measurement of the warmth in the soil. Ideal soil temperatures for planting most plants are 18 to 24 C. Nighttime and daytime soil temperatures are both important. When are soil temperatures taken? Soil temperatures are measured once soils are workable. The exact time will depend upon your climate zone. Warm, Tropical and SubTropical zones, the soil temperature will warm up quickly and earlier in the season. In Moderate zones, the soil temperature may take months to warm up as winter chill wears off. 


Most people don’t know how to check soil temperature or what tools are used for taking accurate readings. Soil temperature gauges or thermometers are the common way to take the reading. Just use a soil thermometeris all you need. In a perfect world, you would check nighttime temperatures to ensure they are not so cold your plant’s health will be impacted. Instead, check in the early morning for a good average. The night’s coolness is still mostly in the soil at this time. Soil readings for seeds are done in 3-5cm of soil. Sample at least 10-15cm deep for transplants. Insert the thermometer as far as you can, or maximum depth, and hold it for a minute or two. Do this for three consecutive days. Determining soil temperatures for a compost bin is also done in the morning. The bin should maintain at least 16 C. Bacteria and organisms will then do their work.
