A group of baby dormice were discovered in a plant pot bought from a garden centre in Kent.
The mice were taken to the Fur and Feather Wildlife Trust in Folkestone and mounted a 24 hour vigil.
Two of the babies did not survive but the two that remain are healthy and safe in the care of the Wildlife Trust conservation.
The Wildwood dormouse rescue centre is the biggest of its kind in the UK and the Canterbury based charity is helping to strengthen dormouse breeding.
Hazel Ryan, Wildwood’s Senior Conservation Officer said, "The hazel dormouse is now classed as extremely vulnerable to extinction but through projects such as this, Wildwood hopes to tip the balance back in favour of the dormouse.”
