What is the history of Olla pots?

Burying unglazed clay pots filled with water is an ancient method of plant irrigation. Clay vessels or pots made from low fire terra cotta clay are porous enough to allow water to pass through them when buried in soil. The word Olla is the Spanish name for 'pot'. There is also evidence of Olla pots being used in the first century BC in Chinese culture.

Plants with long roots, such as tomatoes, can be placed furthest from the centre. Plants with shorter roots should be placed closer to the Waterpot.
