Comments about Product: DELIVERY TIME WAS GREAT. A FEW MONTHS AGO I ORDERED THIS AND
WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED WITH QUITE A FEW HOLES IN THE
LEAVES BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT HAD A NEAT RUSTIC LOOK THAT
I WANTED. SO WHEN I SAW IT ON SALE I TRIED IT AGAIN - THIS
TIME THE HOLES WERE MINIMUM AND AM MUCH HAPPIER.
Comments about Product: The picture online does not show the gobs of glitter on the edges of the leaves. It reminds me of my childs elementary school art work. I would recommend it only if you are willing to put in time to scrape some of the glitter off.
Comments about Product: This garland, and it's sibling wreath, are gorgeous. Very woodsy and rustic with just a glint of light reflecting off the gold on the trim of the leaves. Stunning while being understated. Can be dressed up with red berries, bows, etc.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
