Heucheras aren't usually bothered by slugs as obelixx says - vine weevils are the usual culprits for those.
You'll just have to take precautions with hostas to keep slugs away, but some are more resilient. When you see the new lush growth in spring it's the time to get hunting!
Pots are easier to control if you have a lot of slugs. I only grow a few as I don't use pellets and I don't have time to slug hunt enough.
Great plants but I don't think a suitable candidate for hanging baskets for the reason Verdun gives. You wouldn't get the benefit.of the foliage. They make great statement plants in big pots though.
