Hi again Paul

Forgot to say. If you haven’t got a pond, it is really important to leave plenty of water out when you are on your hols. It can sometimes get quite dry at this time of year. Rainwater is good, as Tony suggested, and some of the ones here definitely seem to prefer it. If you don’t have access to that, tap water is better than a dehydrated hog. I suspect some areas don’t put as much chlorine in it as others. Large flat bottomed plant saucers work well. I use 8 inch ones or bigger (just not so deep that small hoglets can’t get out) – the hogs are less likely to tip them over – they often walk straight through them!

Water is one thing which I do tend to have dotted around the garden.
