Comments about Product: I have bought this planter for my whole family and all love it. I moved recently and gave the new family the planter - they loved it!
Do not leave outside during freezing weather especially if it gets water in it, it will crack. That is the just the nature of good pottery.
Comments about Product: I purchased two of these crocks as Christmas Gifts. I was disappointed that they are actually ceramic not crock. They certainly will not with stand being left outdoors. They look pretty but can't be used as advertised.
Comments about Product: Used with Christmas greenery on a porch (as shown in catalog) and it cracked from the cold. Deceiving photo. Made to seem can be used outdoors in ANY weather. Called company, "nothing we can do about it". Was gift for my husband for father's day. Large crack and broke in half. Glued it myself...not the same but the sentiment still there.

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!
