The Waterpot is a modern-day Olla (pronounced “ Oya ”) which, in Spanish means," a pot".
Olla gardening is an ancient method of irrigation used for thousands of years in ancient civilisations in places such as North Africa and China, burying a porous terracotta Waterpot up to its neck in your container or garden bed and filling it with water will provide natural and efficient watering right at your plants’ roots.
It takes the guesswork out of when and how often to water your garden - essential during times of water restrictions, for dry/arid areas, when away on holidays, and if you just don’t have time to stand with a hose!
Simple, effective, affordable & easy to use. We have two sizes of the round Waterpot for your small space urban container, raised or in-ground garden (do take a look at our Bird Waterpot too for a decorative touch and The Waterpot Round Large Olla ).
The Waterpot Water Spikes have been designed for your small space or indoor potted garden! Sleek and easy to install, the only other item required is a repurposed small, long-necked bottle from the recycle bin that inverts to form a reverse water level indicator. Available in a boxed set of 4 spikes, these also make unique gifts for indoor plant lovers.
