Dove - re your salvias -I have grown these & found they overwintered successfully when it was cold & dry but succumbed to cold and wet. It's a bit late for taking cuttings but it might be worth a try if there are a few bits that look as though they are still growing rather than going into dormancy.
Glad Hefty turned up again - did you do anything to encourage him into the garden in the first place? I'd love a regular hedgehog visitor and am making a couple of hedgehog log & twig piles this week.
