I'm also wanting a hedgehog, great for the garden
A hedgehog is a bit like a cute cactus with legs.
( it's funny how I'm attracted to spiky things...)

Garlic butter may be the answer
Are snails allergic to it (like salt)? :???: :???:
No but you might serve it with the cooked snails
Endeavouring to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, attempting hybridisation, and enticed by Mesembs.
