I,m looking for best  plant suggestions to fill a Northeast facing border [6ft x 15ft] in front of a conifer hedge. A mixture of annuals, perennials & shrubs. Thankyou.

Hiya mick
A mixture including ferns, hellebores, Astrantias, liriope etc.
A shrub or two...nice white hydrangea if ground isnt too dry. Is soil impoverished by that conifer hedge? Can you enrich soil?
Sarcoccoca is an evergreen winter fragrant shrub to fit in there too. Or a skimmia if not too exposed.
Wouldn't put more than two shrubs there.
Fill gaps with disease resistant busy lizzies for summer long colour or begonias.
