I decided to buy a hedgehog house this year (bit of a cheat I know but I'm not that good at woodwork!).
I've placed it down the scruffy end of the garden with lots of Agapanthus leaves draped over it. I've also placed some bark around it and some grass inside. I have put some water outside and some food that I bought specially from a pet shop as I wasn't sure what they ate apart from slugs and snails.
I hadn't realised until I read that they are an endangered species until I read the packet of food.
I'm now hoping that they'll help me next year when they come out of hibernation by eating the slugs and snails on my vegetable garden!
