I would widen the border, as Discodave says, there is not really enough room for shrubs, they will all spread out, and I would plant them a bit further from the fence. If you want plants that go up instead of out then Dove's suggestion of climbers is ideal. If it were mine I would make the bed wider and plant both.
I noticed the olive tree too. If it survives the winters it will eventually grow into a tree and it is much too close to the fence.
Also the ground at the foot of walls and fences is often rather too dry. The fence will stop the rain falling at the foot of it depending on the prevailing wind. So you should always plant not to close to the foot of a fence or wall.
