I don't actually have an allotment but I have a veggie garden. I grow nasturtiums next to the broad beans to keep the black fly off the beans, doesn't actually work, but they are pretty and I put them in salads. I grow French marigolds near the tomatoes, they are pretty too. I have various flowering herbs dotted about, like borage, dill and coriander. I have a tulip patch for cutting and a dahlia and gladioli patch too. Once I sowed some Love-in-a-Mist so they sow themselves every year. This year and some other years I have sweet peas.
