Thrive and Grow Gardens Ollas
Locally made un-glazed porous clay pots you bury in the soil with the neck exposed. Once filled, the water seeps into the soil by capillary flow at a rate that provides nearby plants with a constant water source directly at the roots where they need it. These Ollas are made to autofill by having a barrel or bucket nearby so the hose can keep the Olla full. Just dig your hole, place the Olla, and Water 36 inch circle!
Ollas are economical and save up to 80% of the water that regular watering uses. That’s because the water-seeping ceramic Olla keeps the water in the root zones of plants. The Olla lid stops evaporation. The Olla prevents under- or over-watering. This is ancient garden technology, and it works for you, too.
