Hedgehogs Street garden at Hampton Court Flower Show 2014
In 2014 we took a garden to RHS Hampton Court Flower Show to demonstrate some of the horticultural principals behind our campaign.
Designed as a facsimile of a series of adjoining back gardens, the Hedgehog Street garden showcased three quite different styles of garden, all interconnected and each of superb value to hedgehogs and other wildlife.
The garden was intended to inspire people into the realisation that any style of gardening can be hedgehog-friendly.
The contemporary garden demonstrated that even a slick modern look can be wildlife-friendly with some thought. Photo Iain Green.
