Dial Compost Thermometer
Use as a guide to microbial activity, as evidenced by heat generation, deep inside your compost heap. Awareness of the internal temperature will help you make better and faster compost by knowing when to: add water; add materials; turn; when finished.
  • 54 cm long spike
  • 304 stainless steel, easy to clean
  • 5 to 80° C (40 to 175° F) +- 2° C accuracy
  • No battery required
  • Clear and easy to read 5 cm dial, which is waterproof and anti-fogging
Four In One Soil Survey Meter
This professional instrument is very accurate, and you simply insert the probe into the soil, switch to the setting you want and read the large display.
  • Light level: 9 levels. Important to avoid leggy growth or to accommodate plant specific needs.
  • Soil Temperature: -9° C to + 50° C or F reading too. Very critical for germinating seed success.
  • Moisture: 5 levels
  • PH: 3.5 - 9
  • Requires 9 volt battery, not included
  • 200 mm long probe
  • Good instruction leaflet included
  • 1 year warranty
Moisture and pH Meter
Soil pH has a major impact on nutrient availability. If your soil is much above or below the neutral pH of 7, your plants may not be taking up the nutrients supplied in compost or fertilizers. This simple and accurate probe will help you to determine the soil moisture levels and pH in your pots, mixes or garden beds up to a depth of 200 mm. pH meters are not as accurate as a testing kit, but give a good indication whether your soil, potting mix, compost or other inputs are too acid or alkaline and need amending. Measures pH from 3 - 10. See here or any garden book for the preferred pH level for common garden plants and here for organic strategies for amending pH. Meter is 280mm long, no batteries required.

Propagating Thermometer
Ensure your seed-raising medium is at optimum temperature for seed germination. Insert the thermometer to a depth of 50 - 75 mm; check the temperature after 3 minutes. Complete with suggested germination temperatures for common flowers and vegetables. 145 mm long; non-mercury indicating liquid. Temperature range -30 to 50° C; -20 to 120° F.

Rain Gauge
  • made from UV stabilised plastic
  • simple to install using the built-in mounting plate
  • clear, raised graduations in both inches and millimetres
  • maximum capacity 150 mm
  • 310 mm high by 80 mm maximum width.

Refractometers use a drop of plant sap to measure sugar, mineral and protein levels in plants and fruit. An optimal reading means the plant is better able to resist the pressures of pest, disease and temperature extremes, is fully ripe, has longer shelf life and better yields. It includes instructions. This tool will help you to manage your plants for maximum nutritional benefit, maximum impact from fertiliser applications and minimum pest impact. Measures from 0 to 32 degrees Brix - a range covering most fruits and vegetables. More information on refractometers...

Soil pH Test Kit
Test kit developed by CSIRO, it is very simple and fast to use, an information booklet is included, used carefully it will do up to 100 tests.
