Datura in full flower

cistus and Arum irrigation pots

The Datura next to Fig Leaf Cottage is flowering like never before. Perhaps due to the Arum Lily irrigation pot planted next to it?

The irrigation pot (made by Diane) consists of an underground reservoir pot which is unglazed to allow water to seep out slowly as the plant needs it. Here is what the pots look like before they go into theĀ ground. This simple idea reduces evaporation and makes maximum use of water in our dry summers.
