    Hi, I’ve just joined and I love the site as its got loads of good info and advice.
    I think I have a hog hibernating in an old flower pot so I have got a new hog house. The best place I can think of is in the wild area where we put all the leaves every autumn. They are quite deep so is this a suitable location Or should I put it on firmer ground?
    Fingers crossed for some residents in the new house.

    Hi Sammy the hog

    Welcome to the Forum. Glad to hear you like Hedgehog Street – and yes, you’re right, there is loads of good information!

    Well done getting a hog house. Lots of leaves sound brilliant – that’s what they like to make their nests. Their favourites are medium sized ones.

    It’s difficult to know what to advise re. siting – not knowing the garden – but generally a wild area where they won’t be disturbed too much sounds good. Maybe you could bury the box in the leaves a bit?

    But don’t worry if you don’t get a tenant immediately. Sometimes they like to wait until a box becomes ‘part of the landscape’. But you might be lucky – fingers crossed, indeed!

    Good luck and happy hog watching!
