A safe place to hibernate is of vital importance for hedgehogs. During their hibernation they find a safe and sheltered place to get through the winter successfully. Our tidy landscape often impacts the hedgehog's ability to find a suitable nesting site. As an imitation of a natural nest, this hedgehog basket is the ideal accommodation for a hedgehog. Place the hedgehog basket on a dry surface in a sheltered and quiet place in the garden. Put some loose leaves in the basket. Then cover the basket with a thick layer of leaves, branches and other natural materials. Leave the opening free and try to make sure that it's not facing north or northeast.
