Aquatic expert Dan Everton has this advice on how to maintain your pond during November, when the days are short, frost threatens and leaves are falling from the trees.
This product is an essential accessory for any pond owner, especially during the autumn season due to the excessive amount of falling leaves, branches and small debris.
