Give hedgehogs a treat

A high-protein treat will make your garden the place all the hedgehogs want to be.

Add a feeding station

A covered space is a predator-protected space.

Let plants get a bit wild

You may like law and order in the garden, but hedgehogs prefer your space to be at least a little unkempt.

Add shelter

A shelter a hedgehog can call home might just convince him to stay.

Take care while mowing

The hedgehog's natural defense is to curl up in a ball, so take care when running mowers and other garden equipment
