Help Save the Hedgehogs Part II

Posted: Yesterday at 11:36

Sorry Mark, can't confirm they are using the house, however last night we caught 2 on one camera at the same time. This involved a lot of pushing and shoving and ended with one rolled up in a ball while the other rushed off in the direction of the feeding station ! They both ended up there at the same time later but decided to ignore each other this time. One is appearing from the direction of the house so I'll have a look there later to see if I can find any signs of poo. What makes me smile is that we have one of those "Hedgehog Highway" signs and every time one comes or goes through it I think "Yes, result !"

I love Beechgrove for it's "practicality" and I appreciate the difference between the two programmes. I can't help but feel that subjects like the visit to Barbados etc. would be better as part of a programme at that "dead" time of year around Christmas when we are all stuck indoors.At this time of year practical tips and inspiration for UK gardening is what I'm looking  for.

I was morbidly fascinated by all the plasters on Monty's left hand (right as we looked at it) while he was sowing the tomato seeds. Was there any mention of what he did to need so many ? A fair bit of fast forwarding by me so I may have missed any explanation !

My neighbour has asked my husband & I to plant up a new raised flower bed for him. It was built last autumn, is south facing,about 10 feet square. He has had some box balls planted to give him some greenery over winter,but that is all. Although I have some ideas about plants, I'd appreciate any ideas you have. I'm trying to plan for year round interest and also the fact that he is not a keen gardener and not in the first flush of youth ! This is in the front garden near the front door so will be in full view.

Hog update - definitely 2 as we caught them on camera together. Possibly 3, as I'm sure there was a much larger one on a separate visit.

Was hoping to set up second camera to see if the hedgehog house was being used, but ran out of camera batteries .
