Small bugs on my plant

Hi ,
I just found out today that there are numerous small bugs on one of my plants.
Here's a picture of them:

The plant is in this pot outside the window:

Does anyone know what these bugs are and how to get rid of them?
Thanks!

Aphids. Spray with a mild insecticide like pyrethrum. You can just hose them off, the majority will die before they can climb back to the soft tips and new growth where they suck the juice. In any case keep an eye on your plants that have new spring growth as they can fly in undectected and reproduce in their thousands in a few days when the conditions are right. As well as stressing your plants they can spread disease.
