Clay irrigation pots
OLLAPOTS IS CLOSED, for now.
Hi there, it has been a fantastic journey with OllaPots and we have met so many great people and shared the dream of growing beautiful plants in a sustainable and consumer conscious manner. Unfortunately, we are unable to continue with this dream in the current environment. We are very sad to pause this endeavor and hope to continue when the time is right.
Alan and Melissa.
How do Ollas work?
Our Ollapots are made from unglazed terracotta clay. They are fired at a specific temperature that leaves them porous. When filled, the water will slowly seep out of the pot keeping your soil moist.
The OllaPot is buried in the soil, providing water at a slow steady rate to your plants, where they need it - at the roots!
The OllaPot is planted or buried near your plants. We find that our OllaPots are ideal for pots or troughs but of course they can be planted in open soil as required.
An OllaPot can keep soil moist within an area twice the diameter of the pot.
A plants' water needs are made up of many factors. The size of the plant, soil moisture, fruiting season and sunlight. We recommend monitoring the water usage of the plants and watering accordingly.
Our OllaPot helps to regulate how water is delivered to the plant. The slow seeping of water and the capillary action of the roots ensure that your plants are never thirsty.
Generally, we fill our pots every second day!

Choose the olla that is right for you.
This olla is ideal for hanging baskets and smaller plants. We love them for our hanging baskets of strawberries.
These are great for bigger pots about 50cm in diameter. We like using two ollas in a large trough for green peppers and aubergines.
