Product Overview

Originally used in ancient times in arid climates, a rounded Olla (pronounced “oy-yah”) pot is designed to provide water directly to a plant’s roots, thereby reducing the amount of water used for irrigation. The pot is made of porous, unglazed clay, and is buried neck deep adjacent to annuals, perennials, and other live plants. Simply fill with water, which will gradually seep out through the permeable clay to saturate the surrounding underground soil, thereby supplying a constant water source to the plant’s roots. A super-easy, trouble-free, irrigation solution for drought prone areas, dry sandy soils, raised beds, container and patio plantings, herb and vegetable gardens, between annuals and perennials in the landscape, near young shrubs, or in hanging baskets.

  • A simple watering tool for any landscape situation, especially useful in soils that dry out quickly and in arid climates
  • Roots form a thick, fibrous mat around the Olla pot, intensifying efficient water uptake and boosting plant growth
  • Nearly eliminates water runoff and water loss through evaporation
  • Directs water to the plant’s root system for immediate absorption and root structure enhancement
  • Reduces watering frequency and decreases total water amounts
  • Typically requires refilling a couple times each week, depending on soil type and weather conditions
  • Soil surface remains dry, reducing soil compaction and weed growth
  • In northern regions, the Olla pot should be dug up before the ground freezes in winter
  • Crafted by hand in the USA, so just like snowflakes and fingerprints, each pot is unique and can also be used as a decorative display piece
  • Lasts many years, allowing plenty of time for the plants to become established
  • Space 14 in. apart and position plants within 7 in. of each pot
  • Olla pot size is 7 in. by 8 in. and water holding capacity is 7.5 cups

Asked by: hawaiiansun
Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. Unfortunately, we do not currently stock covers or stoppers for the Olla Watering pots. Because every pot is hand made, the neck, top view and surface texture may vary. We currently carry several varieties that may suit your needs: the Gooseneck (203920024), the Calabaza Squash (203920032), the Acorn Squash (203920028), and the Butternut Squash (203920030).
