Ollas are an ancient watering saving method that works perfect for vegetable and flower beds. A 2 gallon Olla will provide water up to a 3 foot radius. Simply burry the Olla leaving about 2 inches of neck exposed and plant your vegetables and flowers around the Olla. We recommend after initial planting to wet the soil and then let your Olla watering system keep your plants watered and flourishing. Fill with water and replace the lid to prevent evaporation. Refill a few times a week or as needed.
