: I repotted a cilantro seedling into a container with basil and parsley. The cilantro is wilted but not brown, and has tiny black bugs all over it. The bugs are spreading to the basil and parsley. How can I save my herbs?

Hi Sharon,

I realize it's been over a month since you posted this, but it sounds like you have aphids. I would suggest you spray your herbs with an insecticidal soap. You can make a safe one yourself. Here's a link.

Good luck,
