@Unity, The newspaper works untill it rains!! Then it is soggy and no good. I use some old carpet and cut it to go round my pots and this works although next year I'll be planting in hanging baskets as they look beautiful............With regards to slugs/snails etc we have a garden hedged with Laurel, approx 30feet high, Not sure why but when we moved in there wasnt an inch of bark to be seen, it was covered top to bottom in snails of all shapes/colours and sizes. We went out the same night armed with a bucket and torch to collect them and deposit them in the woods over the road and lo and behold there wasn't a critter to be seen on the laurel.................they were covering the lawn, paths and pots scattered around the garden...........there were hundreds if not thousands of them. We collected them up over a few weeks and took them to the woods, we dont have a problem really with them now, maybe one or two hidden under the rim of the odd pot ...........maybe we have done them a favour and they have all found a happpy home and something nicer to eat in the woods............
