Friendly helpful advice. Very efficient. Plants came on time, well packed and in good condition. Would recommend to anyone. All I need now is for the plants to grow and thrive.

Waterside Nursery is my go-to place for all things pond! I have a container pond and required a replacement grid. It was easy to order this .. and the shipment was completed within 3 days. Thank you Waterside - wonderful customer service!
