Slugs have been my biggest issue this year so will be going full bore from now on. I'll to avoid the pellet is I can but will try nematodes, submerged cups of beer, marigolds, nasturtiums and maybe see if I can interest a hedgehog in a home on my plot.
On a sad note I chopped down the cooking apple tree yesterday evening. It's in the way and the yield has been awful this year as well as it looking pretty ratty.
Marigolds always look great as well as being an awesome accompanying plant.
Nasturtiums look lovey but shit do they come back forever. I planted them once and they still creep up in the most random places.
'With over 20,000 classified species, and a possible million unclassified, nematodes are the most numerous multicellular animals on earth' - Just read this, wow!
I have considered these in the past and would be interested how you get on with them.
The only other thing you can do is keep a super tidy plot but it's normally in vain at allotment sites as they'll just crawl in from someone else's plot.
