Hedgehogs are very much a national treasure, and as the
skies are getting darker and the weather getting chillier, lots of us are
checking underneath absolutely everything within our gardens to see if we’re
lucky, and whether a little hedgehog has decided to spend the winter within.
Absolutely and entirely adorable, these little creatures
also promote a healthy garden by eating pests including slugs and snails, as
well as bothersome beetles and all kinds of garden pests – all without harming
anything desirable within. It’s well known throughout our media that these lovely
little creatures are in serious trouble. Did you know that hedgehogs are

In the past 10 years, hedgehog numbers have fallen by 30% and there are less
than a million left within the UK.
This time of year is perfect for hedgehogs – with lots of
leaves falling from the trees, which allows them cover for the winter season.
However – a cluttered garden can lead to confusion for hedgehogs, and in this
time of year, why not clear unwanted things from summer away to allow them free
roam of your outdoor space?
