Hedgehogs roam up to a couple of kilometres and should be allowed to do so. So it is probably usig dozens of gardens as part of its territory.

They generally find the own suitable places to hibernate, under piles of leaves, branches and debris. It might or might not use piles of plant material or shelters provided, such as a box or pile of scrunched up newspaper and cardboard covered with plastic.
