Comments about Product: I knew exactly what I was getting, because I read the reviews. It did not bother me that it was going to be held together by zip ties: the plants will most likely cover them anyway. However, it was disappointing when the zipties snapped when I was attempting to install them. It was not that big of a deal....I had a few on-hand that worked as replacements. All in all....I am happy with my purchase. I am using this under my couch table in front of a very large picture window. I will fill it with potted plants including some ferns.
Comments about Product: I purchased 2 of these planters. They arrived packed well, but each section of planter was seperate, and I had to put it together with the black conduit strips provided. Easy enough to do. I was surprised @ the sturdiness of the planter liner, heavy and with 2 hand straps @ each end. Not too happy with the air holes in the sides and bottom, but I'll make it work. They are actually larger than I thought, (even tho I measured :-)...).
Comments about Product: Basically this planter is as described. Made of rattan, and was packed appropriately. I was surprised to see each section of the basket was seperate, but black conduit straps were enclosed with which to put basket together, ...easy enough. Liner is nice and heavy, and has strong handles at each side. (2 handles per liner), liner also has holes in the sides and bottom, deliberate, I assume for air flow, but since I am using these in the house I'll cover them up. I just intend to place large pots of cascading ivy in them, They should work very well.
Comments about Product: disappointing. if the description had said 'assembly required', i might have figured out this was not a bottomless willow basket. It's four cut panels shipped with plastic cable ties to 'secure' the corners. And the color is not at all the 'natural willow' shown in the photo. OTOH the grow bag liner is more than i expected.

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!
