Professional greenhouses and gardeners have learned that the key to improving seed germination and root propagation is to heat the soil to a higher temperature than the surrounding air, improving seed germination and root growth.
According to the Royal Horticultural Society, many plants can benefit from the pre-warming of soil, to enjoy quicker germination time, and more vigorous plant growth, including: Carrots (Early cultivars), Beetroot, Broad beans Kohlrabi, Leafy Salads such as rocket, Leeks, Lettuce Onions, Parsnips, Peas, Radish, Spinach, Turnips, and Ornamental or decorative plants of all varieties.
Soil Warming can be done in a variety of ways, including the use of manure, or the installation of fluid heating systems. However, the safest, most efficient, and longest lasting results will be achieved by using our self-regulating heating cable buried in a layer of sand under the soil bed.
Self-Regulating Heating Cable provides more heat in colder areas, and less where the soil is warm, providing an optimal situation for plant growth. These cables cannot overheat, so delicate seedlings and plant roots will not be damaged by high temperatures. An Adjustable Thermostat is available for more precise control over you soil temperature, if desired.
