Comments about Product: If you experience short "on" times, i.e., around two hours, replace the re-chargable battery (AA) in the solar panel. I replaced it with a good Duracell re-chargable one and the lights stayed on all night. Be careful of the delicate wires connecting the back of the solar panel to the rest of the circuitry.
Comments about Product: had difficulty following assembly direstions[course am 69 & only cat as a helper]....spray painted the shades dark green...hung the lights on short shepherd hooks placed in flower bed by front entrance....enjoy peaking out the door at the "glow"....very pleased with purchase!!!!!
Comments about Product: I have 3 strings hanging by chains under my patio cover. They ARE solar so like other solar products you won't be able to read by them, they give out ambiant decorative light and look like little stars in the sky when they move in the breeze. I have mine on steady but you can choose for them to flash. Plenty of end cord so solar collector can be placed in best sunlight for maximum nighttime light. Took some planning and time to hang them, but they are exactly what I envisioned and more. I am 68 year old lady and had no problem putting them together with the directions that were included.
Comments about Product: Love the look, but was inordinately frustrated assembling them. The parts seem cheaply made. The instructions are kind of vague if you're not used to putting something like this together. Sadly, I feel like they're more costly than they're worth.
Comments about Product: Plow & Hearth delivered as expected, I have no issues with the company; however, I would advise any customer looking to purchase these string lights of two flaws. Firstly, they only actually hold a charge for @two hours, the seven hour charge as estimated is grossly exaggerated. So, if your garden party is going into the wee hours, don't be expecting these lights to add ambience for very long. Also, while I didn't expect or desire bright lighting, these lights are definitely on the dim side. So, a bit disappointing, however, I did keep them and will continue to use - at least for a couple hours each evening!

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!
