Create a hedgehog haven!
Leaving an area of your garden naturally unkempt with twigs and leaves can help give hedgehogs the materials to build themselves an all-important hibernation nest. Alternatively, buy a hog house or make your own, and put it in a quiet part of the garden. Leave a shallow dish of water readily available as hedgehogs need to drink lots every night.
