Hello samwitch,

Here are my thoghts on this:

Plant the Hebes on their own, if the Campanula are low growing they could be planted in the same pots as the Hebes.
Grow the heathers on their own, they will probably require ericaceous compost.
The Sedum and Aubretia could be planted together, neither will need much watering.
Agapanthus on it's own because you might need to move it indoors during the winter (depending on the variety)
Astilbe on it's own, it will need lots of watering.
The Alstromeria and Monbretia could be planted together, both have similar requirements.
The Narcissus and Hyacinths would look nice together for some spring colour.
Pansies on their own.
Heucheras on it's own.
