Hi, I'm very pleased to say that I'm the proud owner of my very first greenhouse and have been looking into getting a thermometer, but there are so many different ones on the market.. I don't know where to begin.. Any help and suggestions very much appreciated is it worth investing in one that costs 30 quid when I can get one for a few pounds.

I'd get one of those weather centres that read temp and humidity and have a remote extension for the GH so you can see what the temperature is without going out there. Mine cost about a tenner from Aldi some years ago.

I have a digital one (also a tenner) which does inside and outside temp (my GH is too far from the house to follow Nut's example). 

I wouldn't recommend a mercury min/max one, since both ones I have had get the marker mixed up with the mercury, which makes them useless.  I remember others on here (?Dove) having similar problems.

Have fun in your new GH - they are ACE !!

I have a maximum minmum one which I think I got in Wilkinsons for a reasonable price quite a few years ago.

I have a maximum minimum one which is invaluable, need to know how cold it was in the night and how hot it is during the day. Got it in a supermarket in France several years ago.
