Which plant to put under a wooden fence

I have a south facing soil area in my front garden of about 3 mtrs x 30cms under the wooden garden fence.  I would like to plant something in it, the soil has never been planted since the house was built 7 years ago.
Your suggestions would be appreciated thank you

    Have you a photo?
    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by under the fence. Do you mean in front of it?
    If it's a narrow strip of 30 cms in depth [front to back] that can be quite limiting, but you can certainly plant sun loving perennials underplanted with bulbs, assuming there's nothing else around to cause shade. If so, there are plants which like drier shade, and bulbs can still be grown with those.
    If the fence is yours, you can add wires or trellis and grow climbers - annuals or perennial. Lots of clematis will suit.  :)  
    If there's planting on the other side of the fence, that can affect your planting though. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Thank you for your comments

    Yes, sorry my mistake, the soil is at the front of the fence and the fence belongs to my neighbour
