My plants wish they had

This simple lovely planter by designer, Joey Roth. Inspired by an ancient vessel called an Olla used as an irrigation tool by farmers in arid climates, the center of the planter is filled with water and the porous terra cotta allows the plant to absorb the moisture it needs. A lid on top prevents the water from evaporating instead of being soaked up by the soil.

My poor parched parsley is looking at this with envy from the front porch.

Production begins this month - but you can pre-order now on Roth's site for $45.
