How to help hedgehogs in your garden

The Wildlife Garden Project
Monday, 2nd July 2012

The Wildlife Garden Project shows you how to help hedgehogs in your garden. Hedgehogs are in decline in the UK, but this video shows you a few simple things you can do to help our prickly friends like allowing them to enter your garden by leaving small gaps in your fences, feeding tips, plus how to build a simple hedgehog feeding station in 5 minutes. Always remember to provide hedgehogs with fresh water. You'll be rewarded with some wonderful night time viewings and hungry allies in your struggle with slugs.

About The Wildlife Garden Project

Imagine if everybody made just a few small changes in their garden to help our wildlife. Think of the giant patchwork that could be created, all the habitats that could be formed, and all the mouths that could be fed. And you can do as much or as little as you like! Here at The Wildlife Garden Project, we are going to be transforming an ordinary garden into a haven for wildlife, and showing you exactly how we did it through our film, which is in production over the course of the transformation, and our website at

Had to chase a badger away from one of our hedgehogs the other night. Scary moment.
We feed them 'buggy nibbles' (bird food with suet and worm) is that good? The catfood attracted the cats too much.
