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.

Where do I bury my olla? 

Arrange The Waterpot™ Olla 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 plants

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. 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!

Simple, effective, affordable & easy to use.
