garden, Kinfolk and quilt

Hi there,
I just received Kinfolk vol 4, reading it is such a beautiful way to relax!
It's already in my shop for pre-orders.
This year I didn't dare to grow any veggies, 
the weather is so unpredictable, but I have 
few herbs which are doing nicely. I bought 
few scented plants too, like pink carnations 
(the plant looks wonky but the smell is amazing)
and curry plant. I'd like to make a corner of 
scented plants, we bought a cheap and cheerful
swing bench which I hope with new fabric will look 
not cheap and cheerful anymore, 
I will put the scented plants nearby.
I also have a shady corner, any hints of which 
plants do their best in a walled sad corner?
The quilt is an antique find, made out of cuttings 
from old wool suits and coats, it's all hand stitched 
and I have no idea who, when and why did it!

Renilde, thank you, the corner is quite big and I thought I should plant a shrub, someone told me Fatsia Japonica are quite good plant for shady corners.
Yes that quilt is amazing, will post more about it...
