I thought I'd replied to this one but I must have forgotten to press 'submit', sorry

Pand p suggests Geranium macrorrhizum, that is an excellent one, very willing in poor situations.  Anamathele lessoniana  a grass, that will be fine. 

I'd try all sorts of things except the obvious non starters like alpines. Some snowdrops for early in the season, hellebores should be OK. Aquilegias.

Nothing to tall, they'll be forever leaning towards the light

Would a yew tree grow downwards?

You can prune it hard but I don't think it will fill in at the bottom if the top is still there.

That's small.

I've got a nice little pink Oenothera,  seeds about, looks nice with that annual Briza that's on one of the current ID threads. Oenothera rosea. Likes dry, it seeds in the gravel drive.

If elephants ear is bergenia I don't think it will look it's best in a dry rock garden.

Dianthus should be OK

Lots of new people for me this time.

Lost garden tools

I had a pair of secateurs that spent 2 years in the compost heap. OH renovated them and they were Ok til I picked them up in an armful of sticks and threw them in the shredder.

Then there was the pruning saw that I found hanging in a willow tree after about 3 years. That was past renovation though
