I grow all my hosts in pots. They are in groups on my terrace in shade for most of the day. Different shapes and heights. very attractive, and not much of a problem from slugs now. Watering easy too, and feeding.
I've got some in pots on the terrace and some big ones (Sum & Substance and Blue Angel) are in the ground on the Shady Bank - they usually escape the slugs' attention 'cos they're so big and tough, but I'm giving them a bit of tlc just as they're peeking though the soil. There's also a Hadspen's Blue in the front garden that I'm taking a bit of extra care of
