    Water pot olla

    Too early to say yet but looks promising. Going away for 5days next week so that will be the test! Very impressed with the service.

    Small olla in a large pot

    I only just started, but it looks like a good idea to water the deep layers of potting mix in a pot.

    I have 2 raised beds, I bought 2 x 2 litre Olla's and one 'bird'for each bed. Both beds had been previously planted out, tomatoes, cucumbers etc., so to date only 1 bed has had its Olla's planted. But it is interesting I had a punnet of 4 late tomatoes, 1 was planted out before the others adjacent to 1st Olla, and yes that tomato is looking very good compared with the later planted tomatoes, so I definitely think good benefit from the Olla. I LIKE THEM!!!! And the are beautiful too!

    Great product

    Easy to use and my plants have responded well but I wish the bird on top was available in other colours.

    The Waterpot Bird Olla 1L

    The olla is functional and decorative. It saves water and works well at distributing the water as needed to the plant. My orders were beautifully presented and arrived a few days after ordering online. A great company to deal with as products that are environmentally friendly as well as look great.
