Wood charcoal ash

you can grind it up small and mix it in with the soil, it'll break the soil up if its clay in the same way as organic matter, but it wont break down and charcoal doesn't rot.

I've seen 50 meter tall beech trees, but I've also seen neatly trimmed beech hedges 3 foot tall and a 18 inch tall 70 year old beech bonsai tree, you can trim it to any height you need.

Wildflowers but not a jungle!

 I would plant snowdrops, native bluebells (non-scripta not hispanica), wild garlic (ramsons) wood anemones, wood sorrel, sweet woodruff, some small ferns, Christmas roses (hellebores), primroses, honeysuckle where it can climb up a tree, monkshood, some aquilegia's are shade tolerant, various arums (careful they can be toxic), cyclamen and foxgloves (are toxic)

little flies (fungus gnats/fruit flies) can be caught using butterworts or smaller sundews, bigger stuff like blue bottles then hardy pitcher plants like sarracenia's and tropical ones like nepenthes work well as do giant sundews.
