Comments about Product: This is Ellen C again. I wanted to thank Plow and Hearth for replacing my Cornucopia. Though the base is still not the same as in the photo, the floral arrangement is beautiful and much, much fuller than the first one that I received.
Comments about Product: My product looks nothing like the one pictured. The end of mine looks "cut off" and unfinished and the floral arrangement is very flat. If I lived close to an actual store I would have returned it for a refund. You can see in the photo that it is missing an end (like the one pictured on the website). I would love for the company to replace it with one that is identical to the photo on their website.
Comments about Product: I bought this as a "Thank You" gift for my cousin and happened to be at her house when it arrived. She was very pleased with it and we both thought it was lovely and well-made. I would have given it 5 stars if the arrangement would have stood out or up farther from the gourd. It appeared a little flat to me. [...]
Comments about Product: While it was pretty and arrived in perfect condition, I thought it should have a touch more color in it. Seems the picture is more colorful than the actual bouquet. I did receive many compliments on it.

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!
