Comments about Product: I ordered this for my daughter's birthday-she received it in November and likes it, has been in her living room. As for me, a few years back I called in an order and the person I talked to kept insisting I buy the lavender plant on special. I finally did to shut him up. It arrived dead, so I rarely buy thru you any more.
Comments about Product: I ordered these to be on my covered porch, but after receiving them and seeing the high quality of workmanship, I decided to place them in my living room. I couldn't get over how nice they were for the price. I decorated them with red, white and blue ribbons for the 4th and for Xmas I will put them near my fireplace with decorations. They are a A+++++++ My friend liked them so much, that she purchased them for herself.

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!
