    Are you talking about one of the gomphrenas or one of the alliums? A photo of the plant and of the insects would help, as would an indication of where you are gardening. Using the word bugs suggests you’re American.

  • thank you for your reply, you will have to forgive me as I am very new to gardening
    I live in Somerset I think they are  alliums, sorry I do not own a camera at this time 
    so can not help at this time, the 
    insects are small black flies, they eat the leaves of the plant and leave small holes about 1/8 inch
