FAQ Annex: Mail-Order Pond Supplies

Contributed by Diane DeMers

These are from ads in Sunset, Horticulture, and Fine Gardening magazines. I've tried my best to get all the info correct; I don't have any first-hand knowledge (yet) with any except the catalogs from Lilypons. Note: these were all "regular" ads; I didn't look through the classified sections of these magazines.
