There are many reasons to make your garden into a really good habitat for wildlife.
If you are thinking mmmm… they will chomp their way through my vegetable patch – time to rethink and recognise that many of these creatures are on your side – working for you rather than against you.
Hedgehogs are one of the best garden helpers - ever....
It’s an exaggeration to say that hoggys eat huge quantities of slugs as they make up about 5% of a hedgehog’s diet. But they are a huge help and look so cool… They like all sorts of beasties who damage your crops like beetles and earwigs. You can persuade a hedgehog to call by regularly by putting out food, supplying a hoggy home, a log pile and a bit of long grass. It is really important that your garden has water and access – like a hole in the fence to allow your hoggies to roam freely.
