    They are probably in the fridge, garage, wardrobe or car!

    Through the shredder with the heap of sticks you put down on top of them?

    That makes an obvious loud clatter thoughimage You'd have noticed that

    Found them hiding in full sight on the lid of the wheelie bin.

    Unfortunately I had tried compost heap under rose bushes, down back of hall table but hadn't considered fridge.

    My husband stands at door of shed and lobs things in. Never seen anything land on a hook though.

    Glad you found them B3, I often have to search for mine, they are usually under a pile of cuttings!

    Tie a long coloured string/rope to them. They will still hide but it evens up your chances.

    Good plan!

  • I throw mine away in the bin with the cuttings.  I sub-consciously put them in the bucket when I get distracted and then tip the bucket into the bin.    I have lost so many that way.    Either that or they are hiding with the odd socks that I can't find.

    I haven't lost secateurs but I lost my favourite trowel but I did find it.
