How it works
Simply plant your Oya in the garden and fill it with water every few days. The porous clay takes care of the rest.
Plant your Oya
Dig a small hole in your garden and bury your Oya. Surround it with plants that make you happy.
Fill it with water
With a hose or a watering can fill your Oya with water all the way to the top. Then just walk away.
Fill up your Oya every few days and watch your garden grow with less water and much less effort.
An ancient form of localized plant irrigation, ollas (we call them Oyas like they’re pronounced) are terracotta pots that you plant in your garden to save water, save time and make your growing easier.
Alright, you’ve buried your Oya up to the neck in the middle of your planting area. Nice work. Now you’re ready to get planting. Here’s what you need to know to make the most of the Oyas in your garden.
We don’t mean to brag, but using Oyas in your garden will bring all kinds of benefits. You’ve heard about a few of them, but you’ll love the whole list.
We say don’t. Though the jury is out on whether this will work or not, we think it’s best not to add fertilizer to your Oyas.
