    That's slugs or snails. Look under and around the sides of containers and under the rim if there is one. Look under nearby plants. They're lurking somewhere!

    Thanks.    Any tips for deterring the buggers.
    I have taken out the supporting crane sticks incase they climb up them 😅

    They'll just climb the plant instead  :)
    Best method is to go out at night and pick them off and dispatch them, if you don't want to use slug pellets.
    If you do use the latter, only a few is needed. Too many just attracts them.

    I snip the slugs and squash the snails.

    I squish both. My foot is always with me while my secateurs aren't  ;)
