    Excellent Product & Service

    Ordering the Olla jars was easy. They were delivered quickly, and I was kept well informed about what stage my delivery was at by email. When I received the jars, they were well packed, and they are beautiful! I am enjoying using them. Each delivery included a small gift/sample which I enjoyed. But best of all was the personal, hand written message on my second order saying it was lovely seeing me again. Thank you!

    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.

    Return purchase

    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!
