I wanted to know the best food to plant on east coast of Australia tomato etc . I had done a veggie garden once but I didn’t take much home due to grasshoppers eating everything so I wanted to get a heads up on the best stuff to plant or an insecticide FREE way of getting bugs to leave. I was happy to learn… I live in the Southeast region of the United States, so I won’t try to tell you what food plants to grow. But I noticed you want to avoid insecticide :>. I have had good luck with planting flowers to attract pollinators and beneficial bugs that eat the pests. Marigolds are good to plant scattered through the garden to help repel unwanted bugs. Scallions also serve the same purpose. Good luck with your garden.
