Olla Terracotta Irrigation Pot


In Stock

Select Size: 1 Litre



Made from beautiful, naturally porous terracotta, Olla are a fantastic method of ensuring a constant trickling water supply makes its way to your plants roots as and when they need it.

Once filled up, the Olla watering pot allows water to flow out into the soil surrounding your plants roots. It's a clever little system because it works through the power of water tension and osmosis. Water enters the soil from the watering jug at the same rate it's being pulled out by the plants (or escaping via evaporation). This means you're at no risk of over-watering by introducing an Olla to your garden, vegetable patch or allotment.

They're made from entirely naturally occurring terracotta clay, they're unglazed and untreated. A wonderful nature-friendly addition to your garden supplies.

We have four volumes of Olla available. Our 4-litre Ollas are packed with 1kg of sheep wool to protect them during transportation. This can also be used on your garden as a fantastic mulch or to keep slugs at bay!

Buy Land Plant Trees

At the core of Chimney Sheep is our Community Interest Company, Buy Land Plant Trees (BLPT). For every purchase you make with us, 20% of the profit facilitates the planting of trees on agriculturally poor land in Cumbria.

We set up BLPT in 2019 as a ‘boots on the ground’ tree planting initiative. The company is run by us and the tree planting is done by us. We do it to help you and us to reduce our impact on the planet. The trees we plant reduce CO2 output as well as contribute to the reduction of flooding and the creation of habitats for wildlife.

BLPT isn’t a tick box exercise nor a distant and detached carbon offset company. In fact, this is as much part of our business as the products we sell and is an integral part of our ethos. We are big believers in the phrase ‘think globally, act locally’ and want to make a genuine difference

Beautiful product

I ordered two large ollas in 4L size. They were impeccably packaged and arrived in perfect condition, safely wrapped in loads of wool. Not only do these work great in the garden, but they are very beautiful objects. I look forward to seeing how they perform in drier weather

Olla/Oya large

Pleased to have found this to help with water distribution for raised bed veg in communal garden. Like the cap to protect insect life. Arrived very well protected with sheep’s wool which can find a use for.

Well made

These arrived well packaged and are really lovely quality. Too early in the growing season to try them out yet, but I’m planning on putting a couple in each raised bed.

Nice detail

The pot was exactly as hoped for and the lid was a really nice detail. I was in 2 minds about trying out an Olla and the lid clinched it. Beautifully made and well packed for delivery.
