    Can’t remember where I got mine but they are essentially food thermometers to be fair. I found the trick is to buy them two at a time and test the variance between the two. They can be wildy different and I sent two pairs back before they twigged and sent me a matched pair that agreed with a mercury thermometer.

    If they survive the postman forcing them into the letterbox.

    Can’t find exactly the same as I’ve got but it’s many years old and has put up with being pushed in with my foot most times, it’s almost the same as this but longer and has two thermometers in it, one for top 2 inches of soil and other for 6 inches down. Seems pretty strong.

    I prefer the metal sheathed ones. The plastic ones are too flimsy & ive nearly shoved a broken glass one into my artery a couple of times!

    This from Amazon
