  • Decent greenhouse min/max thermometer

    Hi folks,

    Might be a bit of an odd one. I keep buying thermometers. 2 last year, just bought a new one at the start of the season and it's dead already. Would anyone recommend a decent min/max thermometer that can actually survive in a greenhouse?

    Many thanks,

    Baps.

    Watching this thread with interest as ours isn't accurate at lower temps. Just a thought baps do you keep yours in the shade, direct sun can cause them to get too hot and stop working.

      I do keep it in "direct sun" actually. I put quotes around that as the greenhouse is shaded quite a bit with trees, but could well be what's killing them. I could position one out of the sun then if that helps, just thought a thermometer maybe should be able to handle sunlight!

      Thanks,

      Baps.

        The thermometer might be able to, but the battery probably can't. I have a max./min. thermometer that I left in the sun quite recently. Changed the battery and it was fine.
        Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

          I got a "198ft digital display outdoor indoor thermometer hygrometer temperature_humidity" from Ebay last April and all three are still going strong. One in full sun in GH, one in shade in GH and one in shade outside. So far I've only had to change the indoor monitor battery.

            Baps, always keep the thermometer in the shade.
            You are needing the temperature of the air in the greenhouse, not the sun.

            And when your back stops aching,
            And your hands begin to harden.
            You will find yourself a partner,
            In the glory of the garden.
