Woodruff on arable hedgebank

We were walking along a footpath through arable fields south of Fakenham when we spotted patches of frequent Woodruff (Galium odoratum). It continued over three hectares in patches 10 - 30 meters long, growing amongst short grass and extending down the bank of the ditch running alongside the footpath.  A couple of other notable plants growing alongside it were  occasional greater stitchwort (Stellaria holostea) and Bush Vetch (Vicia sepium).
