How to make your garden drought proof, using unglazed clay pots.
Too often plants are left to dry up and suffer, eventually dying. An unglazed clay pot can work as a great, simple irrigation system. It can be buried with its opening at soil level. Covered with a lid, the water will be protected from the sun, and it will slowly seep into the soil. At the same time, if the soil is already wet, osmosis back pressure will prevent it from seeping through and thus overwatering the area; instead reserving the water for when it is needed. This method minimizes the water use, even in the driest area. This can water one square meter of garden or one fruit tree.
