UK Pond centres in Hertfordshire/Cambridgeshire by Steve
Hi, Does anyone know if there are any pond centres in Herts/Cambs? We're looking to buy a pond. We have quite specific ideas on how big and what shape we want the pond and would prefer a shell rather than lining. We're looking for a place that has a good selection. Any help appreciated, Steve
