Olla filled with water and buried in ground irrigates surrounding plantsPlants with long roots, such as tomatoes, can be placed furthest from the centre. Plants with shorter roots should be placed closer to the Waterpot. this is a naturally automatic system, if it has been raining, the soil is wet so there is no moisture tension and the pots don’t release any water. The plants get just what they need, right where they need it with no gadgets or sensors required!

    Quality products, friendly service, excellent advice

    I really love these waterpot ollas! They look super cute in the garden but they’ve also saved on the need for me to water my plants daily. I like knowing they’re taking good care of my plants' watering needs and that I’m cutting down on water use/wastage. I’d definitely recommend them.

    We bought a second set of these little beauties after testing them in our raised veggie patch. We now use them for the citrus trees as well. So easy to install that a 7 year old can do it - and did!

    Olla pots

    I've loved using the olla pots in my vegetable pouch bags, as well as in my ceramic pot. The vegetables look happy and healthy and my blackberry bush is flourishing!

    I'm in Love!

    These beautiful little Olla bottles are fantastic for deep-root watering of my potted fruit trees and vegies. Plant production has definitely increased. And they save water too - less evaporation and water getting right down to the roots where the plants need it. Arrived quickly, well packed (of course the packaging is now breaking down in the worm farm. Everything about the experience was great. I'd like to see other coloured birds and to sell them separately too. Purchasing these products from Wendy and the 'Up on the Roof' team doesn't feel like a transaction - it feels like a friendship.
