Thousands of hedgehogs are maimed and killed each year by being tangled in netting.  No plants need protection at this sort of cost

Netting of all sorts should be stored when not in use. If a hedgehog gets tangled in a net, it will twist and turn until it nearly severs a leg or causes serious injury to the throat. Netting for peas and beans should start at least 30 cm of the ground

If you ever find a hedgehog tangled in netting, carefully cut the netting free, but don’t try to remove it yourself. Immediately get in touch with a Rescue centre or Vet and seek immediate help.
