I came back for more clay pots. I've been using them in my raised garden bed. We grew so many tomatoes and much more. I'm so happy with these results. I've been wanting to use them since I saw them used in New Mexico 10 years ago. Thank you so much for making them available here. Regards, Joy
Oh my goodness Joy, that's a first for us! Tiger snakes love Waterpot Ollas too! :-)
In view of the drought and hence current water restrictions, I have been looking for alternative watering systems and came across your Olla after reading about it. The system works, especially when you want to selectively provide water to less drought resistant plants in periods of extended low (or zero) rainfall. It is a sympathetic, lovely ancient method, with proven result. Further the pots look beautiful with their narrow tops above the ground. I sincerely hope that your Olla’s find their way in many gardens, big and small. Thank you!
Hi Andrea, thanks so exciting to see your Waterpot in action! Be sure to keep the "shoulders" of the vessel buried under the soil so that its mainly only the neck protruding and apply as thick a layer of mulch as you can over the soil up to the neck. (I use organic sugar cane as it eventually composts down into the soil and you just top it up when necessary).
Very positive. Wendy was very helpful with a delivery issue and got it sorted for me. Love the Ollas and can not wait to use them in Spring.
My Lola is almost too beautiful to bury in the garden! Love it. Thanks
I purchased my olla to mount a vanilla orchid onto. It’s been so difficult to find ollas and I was blown away to find people who make them in Australia. This is exactly what I ordered and I can’t wait to see how my orchid goes on its new home!
Hello Amelia-Grace! I've seen Ollas used for this purpose on the web and also microgreens grown this way too. Fantastic! We'd love to see how you do this and share your inspiration.
Excellent. Would highly recommend to all gardeners.
