Comments about Product: This planter is gorgeous! I bought the green letter K as a Xmas gift for my boyfriend's parents. We are going to fill it with various other gifts, but the planter itself is really gift enough! It is very heavy, so be prepared! I plan on buying one for myself, as well. It would make a great housewarming gift.
Comments about Product: I used the planter on the front porch stairs. It fits nicely there. The quality of the planter is very good. It is very sturdy and heavy. I don't worry about it tipping over. The color (green) is vibrant and the lettering was correct.
Comments about Product: I gave this gift to my in-laws for Christmas. We live where it is cold all winter so they have not yet had a chance to use it. However, just from appearances it looks great. It feels very sturdy and is a nice, big size. They loved it. Can't wait to see it in action.

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!
