Underplanting the native woodland with conifers has generally suppressed the native ground flora, but a Scottish Wildlife Trust survey in 2000 recorded 88 species of flowering plants, including bluebell, primrose, snowdrop, yellow flag iris, meadow sweet and meadow crane’s bill. 

Proposed open space management allowing greater light penetration to the site should significantly enhance the native ground flora even further.
