Growing herbs/spices in Kaneohe?
I'm a complete gardner noobie but I want to learn!
In a new house here in Kaneohe near Windward City Shopping Center and we're still working on our yard it's just a big dirt lot/weed field (thank God we didn't do any topsoil/plant grass before all these rains!)
I recently planted some basil, parsley and other spices in some pots outside and they started out great. However now the basil and the parsley have been chomped with lots of holes in them and I notice these smaaaall little bugs that look like little round ticks or something. I looked around the net and they may be whitefly pupae but I think I saw legs on them so I'm not sure.
Another plant has these little small tiny catepillar things on them that give me the willies. haha
Eventually I want to grow a real herb garden but now I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to grow an herb garden that isn't just for the bugs to eat. Do I need a greenhouse or do I need to spray them with something every day.
Any advice or sites or advice appreciated! Please I'm completely clueless about this kinds of stuff. I'm so happy I discovered this forum, I was just spending the last hour reading through everything.
