A home for hedgehogs

Hedgehogs are a welcome visitor in gardens. Not only are these cute characters sweet to look at, they also offer an invaluable service to gardeners by helping to keep slugs at bay. 

Sadly times are tough for our prickly friends. Hedgehog numbers have dropped significantly in recent years, with dwindling habitats, busy roads and a lack of food all to blame.

Providing a shelter for hogs can be one simple way to support these animals. We especially love this Hedgehog House from Not on the High Street. Handmade from natural barkwood with moss for added camouflage, this hogitat provides the ideal place for hedgehogs to shelter from rain or even hibernate for the winter.

This fire pit from Not on the High Street is not only stylish, but great value for money too. It’s crafted in a heavy gauge raw steel that over time ages to a natural rusty finish. It also features two handles each side to make for easy carrying – ideal when transporting around the garden.
