Looking for a ground cover plant

Geranium macrorrhizum would be near the top of my list. That's evergreen but thins out a bit in winter so you could have snowdrops as well.

Vinca is a trouble for me as it covers large areas then gets rust and looks awful.

Lamiums are another good one

Trachstemon orientalis is good, not evergreen but good large leaves swamp everything in the weed growing season

I find ajuga has a thin time in summer on my soil

Mine didn't last long enough for me to comment on growth habit.

I hope someone else can advise

It's not very hardy, a sprawling sort of shrub. 

I just jhad a look at the Burncoose site and they say down to -5C. That wouldn't (didn't) survive for me, I don't know where you are.

plant them, they grow tall like the sunflowers they are. Helianthus tuberosa.

Don't eat them, they taste like dirt and give you gut rot.

If you have at least half the edge with gently sloping sides it will look more natural and anything falling in will be able to get out.

Are you sure about the fence?
