Attract… Aphids?

I’ll take “What can I plant in my garden to protect my other plants from aphids?” Alex.

Answer: nasturtiums. Aphids love nasturtiums and will tend to flock to it and leave other plants in your garden alone. Plant a few around your garden to use as aphid magnets (nasturtiums themselves are also quite tasty – try tossing a few of the leaves or flowers into a salad).
