Interesting Hedgehog facts:

  • Hedgehog’s are nocturnal which means they are awake at night, traveling long distances foraging for food and can travel up to 2 kilometres in one night.
  • A hedgehog’s eyesight isn’t that good so they rely on their excellent sense of smell and hearing to get around.
  • Hedgehogs are good at digging for insects as they have sharp claws and powerful front feet.
  • Young hedgehogs are called hoglets and are usually born between May and September.
  • Hedgehogs hibernate between November and mid-March dependent on the temperatures and need sufficient fat reserves to survive hibernation.

Hedgehogs and your garden:

Hedgehogs are on the decline as their natural habitat and food sources become depleted so can really benefit from your help.

To help them in your garden it’s a good idea if you can to leave an area in your garden to grow wild and undisturbed as this is the ideal place for hedgehogs to explore, take shelter and nest. It’s also a good place to find tasty insects & bugs that are also drawn to this type of habitat. 
Hedgehogs like to nest under bushes, hedges, branches and piles of leaves. You can help by placing a hedgehog house in this quiet undisturbed area of the garden where they can build their nest to rear their young and to hibernate. Fill this with dry leaves and it will be an ideal place for them to nest. 
Hedgehogs should hibernate between November and mid-March dependant on weather.

Hedgehogs are ‘a gardener’s friend’ as they eat slugs, beetles and caterpillars but do not damage the garden and so should be encouraged. The hedgehog is an insectivore that eats all manner of garden invertebrates from beetles, millipedes and worms to slugs and snails.

Feeding Advise:

Before more was known about the dietary needs of hedgehogs’ people used to feed them bread & milk when they visited their garden. This is not recommended as it will give them an upset tummy and offers very little nutritional value.
The best way to help the hedgehogs that visit your garden is every night just before dust put out some dry hedgehog food for them & fresh water.
Any uneaten food should be removed in the morning to avoid them being eaten by cats or vermin and placed out again the next night with fresh food and water.

FEEDING GUIDE:- Place Mr Johnson’s Wildlife Hedgehog food in a heavy shallow bowl in a quiet sheltered spot in the garden , this will provide hedgehogs with essentials vitamins that will supplement their natural diet especially in times of natural food shortage.
