Hedgehogs hibernate for several months (starting Sept – Nov) over winter, living off fat reserves stored during autumn. We’re often asked what food can put out to help provide local hedgehogs with vital calories, so here’s a list:


YES

  • shop-bought hedgehog food mixes – we stock a range of suitable hedgehog foods and hedgehog houses in store!
  • meaty wet cat or dog food
  • fresh water

NO

  • bread and milk
  • mealworms
  • peanuts
  • sunflower hearts
