I had a little sprig of rosemary growing on my kitchen window sill, for about a month. I also had some Sage, for cooking purposes, you know. But then, these white things started growing on my rosemary and soon they developped into a potatoe bug- like creature. I became disguested and chopped off most of the rosemary and replanted it into a pot outside.

The sage had little red bugs all over it and they spun webs all over the leaves. Again, I cut off most of the leaves, hoping to save my plant from a Sun-deprived death.

Was there a less destructive cure for my plants? Something that isn't made of chemicals, preferably.

I'm not sure about the white things, but the red bugs sound like spider mites. You can spray down the plant with a mild soap-and-water mixture to get rid of them, and just rinse the whole plant once in a while to keep them away.
