My garden is the same Janet, in the winter the sun doesn't get high enough to shine over my neighbours conifer hedge to the south or the houses to the west. The northern fence gets some sun and things that are fairly tall on that side of the garden.
I've lost plants but I think it was more to do with the wet and me not improving the clay soil sufficiently.
Hopefully someone with more experience can give you some advice.
All I can say is a lot of plants do quite well with only sun from the east, and my garden seems to get going later in the year I assume because of the lack of sun.
