With an old wooden box and a few bricks you can host your own winter holiday home for hedgehogs
If you think you’ve got hedgehogs in your garden, encourage them to stay throughout the winter with a home of their own.
All you need to do is provide a wooden box (a wine crate is ideal) and bury it under some old leaves.
Before you bury it, make a small entrance hole in the box using a saw and, once it’s in place, build a covered tunnel (using bricks and a wooden plank as cover) leading up to the entrance hole to help prevent foxes, badgers and other predators from raiding the nest.
You can then watch the prickly visitors come and go.
