Back To Basics: Temperature And Relative Humidity

Let's get back to garden basics for a second! One important factor you need to know about with your area is the temperature and relative humidity. Granted, it doesn't sound like a big deal but it plays an important role when it comes to gardening.

Temperature is simply a measure of how hot or cold something is (duh!). Relative humidity, on the other hand, is the amount of water vapor present in the air. Meanwhile, temperature and relative humidity are inversely related.

This relationship means that when temperature increases, relative humidity decreases and the air starts to feel drier. Meanwhile, a decrease in temperature increases humidity making the air feel more wet. Depending on the type of garden plant, its humidity requirement differs. Vegetable plants generally like a higher humidity and cool conditions. Fruits on the other hand prefer lower humidity levels and summer-like conditions. To meet your plants’ humidity requirements, you can try planting the seeds according to the best season!
