Two years of voluntary conservation work have succeeded in introducing a rare plant to Mildenhall.
More than 50 Breckland Mugwort plants have put down roots in an overgrown archeological pit thanks to work by The Friends of Thetford Forest and the Forestry Commission.
Over two years the group carried out four conservation visits.
Volunteers cleared and weeded the site before sowing seeds last Autumn.
Forestry Commission Ecologist Neal Armour-Chelu said: “The Friends of Thetford Forest had been determined to make this work and this is a fantastic result. Breckland Mugwort is a very rare plant and this is an important new site with far more plants than we had ever dreamed of. It will be great when these begin to flower and set seeds themselves.”
Breckland Mugwort is only found in eight sites of Breckland.
