Probably an old Chestnut but am new to this N.G.
Could someone please advise if hedgehogs should be encouraged or discouraged
in the garden.
Also what is the role of the snail and slug ?
Thank you in anticipation,
We don't have hedgehogs where I am (that I know of) in Houston but I believe
they eat bugs mostly. Not sure if they eat plants or not.
The only role that I know of for the slug or snail is to munch on the plants
and buds you most like. Sluggo is a good remedy for them, although it may
take more than one treatment. Sluggo is also pet friendly.
Personally I would leave the hedgehog alone and kill off the slugs and
snails. Unless I heard right and hedgehogs eat those too.

There's actually a cookbook called BEST WASHINGTON SLUG RECIPES (1983) but
it's out of print, alas.
And of course slugs go good with worms:

"Oh, sir! The flowers, they are wild," replied the timid creature.
I remember a boss saying of a (highly-esteemed, I should say)
colleague "For somebody who can't work on Friday evenings, he eats an
awful lot of sausages." A Jewish girlfriend whose sister suddenly
started keeping Kosher and everything referred to the unexpected
transformation as "going Catholic".
