Ollas… nice looking clay pots you pay a lot for and then proceed to burry to the hilt in dry parts of your garden to irrigate a few plant efficiently. Ollas, I need you, but I refuse to dig you out in the winter… what to do… what to do? I think I will do a test run for the hellstrip along our detached garage with two clay pots joined together at the rim with calk such as those.
Two reed grasses (variety unknown) are doing well in the space but I would like some “Little Spire” Russian Sage to thrive in this site. The plants I put there this spring look tiny and anemic still. Confession time: All Russian sages fail in my garden, apparently they need more water than they receive where I tuck them in. It a sore point for me, every one can grow Russian sages apparently… Maybe the ollas will be the key. If not it’s bye bye sage, no fuss, no buts, no coconuts!
