Many people would plant herbs in that situation Nichola. Is that something you would use or would you prefer something 'floral' ? Most herbs prefer sun, so it would help to know what the general conditions are too, and what the soil is like.
Also - if you want floral, do you like a symmetrical look? It lends itself to that. You could put bulbs in for late winter/early spring then use perennials to follow on for summer
