If you leave a messy patch in a quiet undisturbed area of your garden then hedgehogs might make their own nest there either to hibernate in or to rear their young. However, if you want to improve your chances of having a resident hedgehog you could buy this wooden house. It provides a safe habitat for hedgehogs in your garden, and is suitable for hibernation, breeding and summer shelter.
The ideal place for the hedgehog house is under a hedge, large shrub or similar concealed place to make it as natural as possible. It should be out of direct sunlight and prevailing winds. A dry spot is preferable, such as behind sheds, a quiet shaded corner or under dense shrubs and bushes, as these are sites that hedgehogs would choose naturally and to further enhance the chances of early occupation you can quarter fill the chamber with dry leaves or bedding.
The wood comes completely from FSC-certified well-managed forests.
