Hedgehog Street garden at RHS Harlow Carr

Have you ever wanted to improve your garden for hedgehogs, but not known how to? Or perhaps wondered how hedgehog-friendly features can be achieved in a particular style?

On 25th April our Hedgehog Street garden is due to be launched at Harlow Carr, one of the Royal Horticultural Societies’ flagship gardens.

PTES and BHPS have teamed up with the Royal Horticultural Society and award-winning garden designer Tracy Foster. Following the theme of our garden at RHS Hampton Court in 2014, the design is based on three neighbouring gardens, each of a different style.

One Mediterranean, one rustic and one contemporary – but each hedgehog-friendly in its own right and each demonstrating different features that will help declining hedgehogs. A range of garden hazards are also illustrated to help you play it safe.
