Planting a Pond
There is something really satisfying about a pond or water feature in the garden. A good one looks beautiful and is great for all sorts of wildlife. Water features can bring movement and sound into any garden. But garden ponds need occasional maintenance and the water is cold and dirty and if your hands are immersed for any length of time, or there is a cold wind passing over wet hands, the whole business can be quite unpleasant. Perennial Favourites has come across just the gloves to bring back the joy into messing about in the water. We tried Drain and Pond gloves for the first time while planting a pond in a school garden. Yes a progressive school which is prepared to allow water in the grounds, they do exist.
The gloves seemed to be robust enough to last well so from Perennial Favourites and Pete, our glove model and specialist aquatic plant operative, a rubber thumbs up for long sleeved pond gloves. Thanks to Pete for keeping his hands clean and dry and volunteering to be the blog guinea pig.
