Simple, effective, affordable & easy to use.  Our large 3 Litre Waterpot Olla is perfectly suited for outdoor garden beds and larger potted plants, both indoors and outdoors. Your plants will thrive as they draw the water they need to grow directly from the Waterpot which means no more second-guessing or overwatering. 

 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 Small Round Olla.)

Why should I use The Waterpot in my urban garden?

  3. Provides plants with steady moisture 
  4. Low tech and easy to use 
  5. No need for water pressure or electricity or water filters

Where do I bury it? Arrange The Waterpot™  in clusters and plant your starter seedlings or plants around them, whether in a container or in the ground. Each pot will irrigate the plants around 30cm of the neck. Plant seedlings in a circle or place between rows in a garden bed. Depending on the size of a planter container, one may be sufficient. 

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!

    Slightly different use but brilliant nonetheless

    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.

    Back for more

    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
