Comments about Product: Loved receiving this gift! The first ones were gorgeous. But 3 of 12 never bloomed and there was mold on a few from last spring. Most won't survive replanting in my area so we just had pots of dirt to enjoy. 2 of the summer ones went straight outside because of the bugs they came with. Wonderful gift idea, but, unfortunately, not so great plant reliability.
Comments about Product: P&H very responsive. All but the Dahlia's did grow and bloom with lots of blooms and in very good condition. Very disappointed in the Dahlia's. P&H provided a replacement but it also had same problem - grew very slow and when it did finally start it really looked like a pot of weeds - no blooms. Got a little tired of getting tulips. Also, most of the tulips, etc. grew too tall to stay upright in the small planter. Had to prop them up. Also got the exact same plant for both Oct and Nov - same colors even. P&H did replace. So not bad but not perfect. I have planted all the bulbs and hope they come up outside next year.
Comments about Product: We have sent this to my Mother for several years and she loves receiving a new plant each month. She calls to tell me what flowers she has and how beautiful they are in her home. Highly recommend.
Comments about Product: We bought this to send to our recently widowed step-mother who lives across the country. She calls every month to tell us what her flowers are doing. It really seems to lift her spirits to see something cheerful and blooming. It's also a way to let her know that we're thinking about her and love her. She is always enthusiastic about the flowers (of course, not having seen any of them, we can't really vouch for the quality firsthand) but it really has been a terrific way to keep in touch and show our love.
Comments about Product: I was very excited to receive this as a gift and the first 2 months were pretty good. But the quality of the bulbs has gone down every month. This month was dahlias. 3 bulbs. Only 2 grew and all they produced was leaves, no flowers at all. The arrangements by the 2-3 week are half dead and half not bloomed yet or will never bloom

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!
