Planting Recommendations


OllaPots are ideal for planting in pots or hanging baskets, but would work equally well in raised beds or open soil.

There are so many different configurations and combinations of pots and plants it is impossible to cover them all. As a general rule an OllaPot can keep an area three times its diameter moist.


When we plant troughs we use two of the medium pots. Bury each pot about a third of the length from the end of the pot to spread them out evenly.

You can add your plants around the pots. In this case we made a herb trough including Basil, Sage and Thyme. Don't forget to mulch the soil. 

Hanging baskets

Hanging baskets are great for strawberries or herbs. They are notorious for being messy and leaky when watering. 

We usually bury one small pot in the middle and get planting! No more messy water overrun.

If you have any doubt what OllaPot will best suit your needs please email or call us and we will try to help as best we can.
