Spiky characters: Hedgehogs and Teasels

As Hedgehogs roam the British countryside looking for a place to nestle down and hibernate for the winter, we discuss how you can help them in your own gardens. Then we take a look at a favourite wildflower of ours that looks fantastic in any garden: the Teasel.
