I like the idea of flowers in the veggie plot, too. Two years ago we suffered badly from blackfly, but last year we edged the whole veggie section with different marigolds, and had no trouble at all. It looked terrific, and due to the mild winter they kept flowering well into February this year!
Our nasturtiums, grown on the opposite side of the garden, did suffer with blackfly last year, so we shall grow them together with marigolds in future.
