The temperature of your compost is crucial to knowing when to water, turn, add more material and when it is ready for your plants. This is where the Firgus compost thermometer can help in providing accurate temperature readings from your compost pile to determine the current stage of decomposition within your compost heap.
Knowing the accurate temperature of your compost heap from the center of the pile with minimal disturbance will let you know:
- When to turn your pile;
- When to add more material and what type of material to add;
- When to water;
- When the compost is ready.
The Firgus compost thermometer can be used in your compost pile or in your compost tumbler to determine the stage and health of composting which is shown on the gauge over three easy to read temperature zones, being:
- Warm – This is when the bacteria, worms and insects start to work and breakdown your kitchen scraps and yard waste into a useable plant dressing;
- Active – This is when the compost really gets working and the fungi, microorganisms and beneficial bacteria are working at accelerated rates to break down the scraps into a rich compost;
- Hot – At this temperature range this is when any seeds and diseases that may have been in any scraps get killed off and the compost is almost ready for use.
Because of the quality construction of the Firgus backyard soil thermometer this can be left in your compost pile overnight and still be working fine the next day.
The Firgus compost thermometer comes complete with a bonus stem sheath to protect the probe of the thermometer when this is stored away in your garden shed.
