Hanging/trailing plants in full shade - any advice?

I think that for colourful ground cover or even for hanging baskets Nasturium, they have a lovely orange and yellow flowers the self seed and come back on their own AND their edible !!!! a nice little addition to a salad with a peppery taste  . I brought mine from seed lastyear and potted them indoors and once they was big enough they went outside and they died back at the beginning of winter and they will come back int the spring

hello everyone 

ive really got itchy fingers and cant wait to get back into my garden,i dont have a shed or greenhouse so its either planting straight into the garden or in pots on the windowsill.

this week i have planted out some dahlia tubers ,lily bulbs and a few anemones (early feb )

parts of my garden do get the sun but its not full sun all day ,i really would like some advice on things i can do right now 

thank you
