Gourd Good, Pole Must Go
Comments about Product: After originally ordering the Gourd and Pole SET, I was very disappointed at the gourds that came. They were two pieces. After many calls,P&W then sent me 8 one-piece gourds. Excited, I go to set up the pole and it was missing pieces, missing the coupler, crack in the plastic, and the bag with the parts was someone's old Ziploc bag. Obviously this had been returned before. I missed out on this season's purple martins. I am returning everything!!!
GOURDS ARE NOT ONE-PIECE
Comments about Product: I was so disappointed when I was putting together the gourds. First, the description in the catalog made it sound as if the gourds were one piece. They are NOT! They were two pieces so I thought it wouldn't be too bad. WRONG! They did not stay together securely, and the sides were popping open with cracks. They say that can happen if you tighten the screw too tight. It happened no matter how tight the screw was.
I called and they are replacing the two piece gourds with the one piece gourds as described in the catalog. I am waiting for their arrival and hope that they do not get here after the scouts have declared their turf.
Comments about Product: Very nice for the price. Looks durable with the right features to attract Martins. Little difficult snapping together but some pressure in the right place did the job. Got it fully installed in about an hour and now we will wait for the birds to show up.

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!
