Hi,
It's frosty here and my Hermans is buried in the garden.
I have just stuck a probe in the ground about where she is, and it's 2Degrees.  I think this is too cold.

Obviously, it's dificult to warm the ground up smoothly.

Any suggestions.

How does she normally hibernate? We had a tortoise in both the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Dorset and always hibernated it indoors under the stairs in a box of leaves. Is it not risky in this country to rely on them just digging in to the ground? I know Poole is considered mild overall, but is it suitable for outdoor hibernating?
