Clay Pot Irrigation, an ancient, ef_ cient watering system, is making a huge comeback as gardeners learn about its value. Very simply, clay pot irrigation consists of burying an organic unglazed clay pot, called an olla, in the ground up to the neck. Fill the Olla with water and plant around it. Soil moisture tension waters the plants as needed, saving up to 70 percent in water use. Use a third less fertilizer in the olla. A Dripping Springs Olla can water a 36-inch diameter circle for three to _ ve days, in a garden, raised bed or container.
