Comments about Product: I am a first time gardener and was looking for something I could use to grow a vegetable and herb garden on my patio. The results have been absolutely terrific. The directions for set up were super easy. They also gave me tips on what to grow in it and when to grow them. Everything I've planted in it is thriving. I plan on having a year round garden. I am thrilled with this product.
Comments about Product: I bought one and then had to get another. There was not quite enough room for the veggies I wanted to grow in one. This is my first try at gardening and its the perfect way to start.
Comments about Product: The product was delivered in a good time frame. However the product it self is very disapointing.
We have just assembled and it is too low, I hope it holds the plants I want to plant. The peices that make up the "dividers" are corregated paper. I would not recomend.
Comments about Product: Web Description says made of recycled plastic but box description confirms appearance of being made of composite wood. I didn't discover this until already assembled, filed with soil, and planted. This seems to be a major misrepresentation. I am hoping it will not disintegrate with time.
Comments about Product: It did not take me long to get the kit put together and have a small garden going. It looks good and the boards don't seem to change color with the weather (rain, sun)
I wish, however, for the grid to be attached somehow to the boards, as to ensure it does not move when checking on the plants.

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!
