A good nest is essential for hedgehogs if they are to survive the winter.
They often build their nests under logs, piles of brushwood or leaves. However, in our tidy gardens there is often nowhere for them to build their nests. This hedgehog basket imitates a natural nest and is an ideal home.
This wicker house measures: Height: 26cm (10") x Width: 38cm (15") x Depth: 53cm (21") with a 23cm x 15cm (9" x 6") entrance.
Put the basket on dry ground, in a quiet, sheltered spot in the garden. Put some dry leaves in the basket and cover the basket with a thick layer of leaves, then a plastic sheet and then more leaves, twigs and other natural materials.
Leave the opening clear and facing South or South West. It is important that the construction is sturdy enough to prevent dogs and badgers disrupting it.
