Extinct ‘mountain jewel’ plant returned to wild - in secret location

Quote

A plant that went extinct in the wild has been re-introduced to the UK mainland. We can’t tell you the exact location - it’s a secret, to keep it safe. It’s just one small plant but with one in six species in the UK endangered, you’ve got to start somewhere. We were there the moment pioneering horticulturist Robbie Blackhall-Miles returned it to its native soil.

I first met Robbie at his nursery for threatened plants - tucked away in a quiet part of North Wales.

What he keeps there is so valuable, he can’t even get it insured.

Tells you all you need to know that a plant’s location has to be secret to ensure its safety….:no:

Because thousands of idiots would immediately run out there to either "Just look", or to purposefully dig it up. Lots of these idiots mean well, but do more harm than goid by showing up.

Difficult to get inside their head and understand their thinking…..and I’m thankful for that inability…
