our basil keeps getting little grub like pests
How do we get rid of the tiny little green (nearly minute tiny) grub-like wrigglys that are causing our basil grieve? This is the 3rd planting of basil, as sometime you can go and check it out. After looking at it the day beforehand, it has stripped leaves. The other issue we have is that the coriander just seems to go to head on a regular basis. (this time we have planted coriander) What are we doing wrong. . . with both of these herbs? Cheers.
