    Much as I would love to give a hedgehog a home in my garden, our area is inundated with badgers who consider them a tasty snack.  Although we have now (fingers crossed) secured our boundaries from badger invasion, hedgehogs need a large area to range over – so one way and another this rules them out.  For those of you who are badger free, the best way to assist hedgehogs is by helping them avoid man-made hazards and providing them with suitable places to nest, especially in the winter. They will reward you by eating slugs, beetles, and caterpillars. With every Hogilo Hedgehog House & Feeding Lounge bought from Garden4less in May a total £10 from the sale will be donated to the British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS).
