How to `winter` flower pots/tubs
I moved house 2 years ago and at my last place never had any issues and just done what I thought was right, my father was a great gardener and I must have picked up something of his expertise. Anyhow in my latest home as I am getting older I decided it would be lawn / paving slabs / and pots for some herbs and veg, however my wife decided after 40 years of marriage to get involved and do flowers in pots, she is a flippin nightmare with it but hey she is happy.
My question....The pots she is using which are full of earth/compost, how are these best `wintered` and can I do anything to get any slugs out of the soil (in the pots) as she did lose a couple of plants during the summer and the roots had been nibbled away. I am sure in days gone by that my dad used jeyes fluid in his greenhouse for this.
Thoughts / advice please
