Need To Increase Soil Temperature
I need to increase my soil temperature by 3F or 4F. I live in Flour Bluff in Corpus Christi, Texas (a normally low end Zone 10A Climate) and have very sandy soil about 90-98% sand. My normal soil temp is about 57F to 57.5F in January, but I need to get it to around 60F or slightly higher. I am growing coconut palms in the ground in my yard, and I don’t want to lose them, since for the most part they need a minimum winter time soil temp of 60F or higher. Is there anything natural and organic I can do to increase my soil temperature, especially in the winter time.
