Hi Hedgehoghelper7

Welcome to the Forum! Sadly there is no guarantee that hedgehogs will visit, but you have a head start if there have been some nearby and if you are offering food. Hopefully you are leaving water out as well. Hogs can travel up to 2 miles a night so the distances you mention are not far to them.

It might encourage them more easily if some food is left outside to start with so they can smell it more easily when passing your garden. Also a few hogs don’t like going into hog boxes to eat outdoors. There is no knowing how long it might take – it’s really trial and error. Fingers crossed one or some turn up soon. Keep us posted.

Good luck!
