There are loads of stunners out there that would fit in beuatufly and you could do it a little potager style  If you prefoer not to grow fruint and veg, then herbs are wonderful and would be perfect growing along the edging of the bed.

I would always reccommend growing a tree that is going to help the envoroment around you. Confirs don't give much back and are very good at drying the ground and making it accidic. Have you thought about buying trees like the ones offered here:http://www.woodlandtrustshop.com/category/68-tree-mixes.aspx (Just gave you this link to help give an idea of good trees to plant ) that feed wildlife or even you!
