Yes all in pots and had them for about 25 years ..... Spilt them most years so that's just a few !!! Give them to friends too :) @angipangi

You've spurred me on to dig some of them up. I learned another tip today that slugs don't like metal pots so that's a possibility too. 👍🏻😀

I use oranges !!! @brightcolours , and I go out and pick them off at night but oranges distract them and they have a good munch on them instead of the plants :)

I did wonder about the #oranges !!! 🍊🍊🍊Haven't seen that one mentioned before!! So thankful I don't have the same problem with snails and slugs where I live in Australia. @ukgardentags Would make a great feature tip!!!

It does confuse so many people when they are in the garden why I have oranges every where .... Maybe I should get picture of them working and spread the word :) @brightcolours
