High quality giclee print that shows three hedgehogs visiting a beautiful garden. All artwork should be shown out of direct sunlight.
Did you know that the name hedgehogs comes from how it forages for food and when foraging they make little grunting noises, interestingly a baby hedgehog is called a hoglet? Each hedgehog has about 5,000 spines and they last about a year. A hedge hog has cute little ears which are excellent for hearing and make up for their terrible eye sight – their sense of smell is also highly developed too. That’s why they can always find the plate of food you leave out for them.
Seeing a hedgehog in the English garden used to be common. In the 1950s it was estimated that there was a healthy population of around 30million hedgehogs. Today that population has dwindled to one million with only 12% of the British population having ever seen a hedgehog in real life.

The news for hedgehogs isn’t all doom and gloom though, many gardeners are acting on advice to make their gardens hedgehog friendly by avoiding slug pellets, leaving shelter and checking wood stacks before bonfires. Every little bit helps the hedgie!
