Please suggest colourful shrubs ( for all year round) that are suitable for a bed in partial shade, also can I put small bedding stones on this bed to stop the weeds comming up , even if I have delicate bulbs such as blue bells planted below.

It is difficult to have colour in shade because shade lovers have more green chlorophyll in the leaves and they tend to small flowers.

You could try the following: aucuba, variegated lauristinus, golden lonicera, golden philadelphus and golden euonymus. All but the philadelphus are evergreen.
