So I grow some of my own herbs, I have some in the greenhouse that are grown from seed and some on the windowsill. I have noticed recently that the ones on the windowsill are covered in little bugs – sort of flies and larvae. They live on the underside of the leaves, as you can see from the picture, but they will not die.
I have tried washing them off with warm soapy water, but they come back within a few days. I worry that the soil is ‘infected’ and I am going to have to chuck the whole container. Which is a shame a they don’t appear to be interested in the parsley growing next to the coriander. I just hope the ones in the greenhouse don’t suffer the same fate.
Any thoughts would be gratefully received.
