Cuttings, but not doable at home, misters needed etc etc. Personally not a fan, they don't grow tall here but the top becomes stunted and the trees ball shaped - possibly the solar intensity, or the heat, or the wind, combined with the lack of soil depth. I never saw one taller than around 10ft, and they were always as wide or wider. If you want a conifer the native Pinus halepensis grows very rapidly when young and cared for and will grow anywhere - even on near-bare rock.

Berries to be collected in autumn when they start turning black, seed is within the berry. I have this idea that the seeds have serious dormancy issues, need to look this up.

Having said that, had one pop up unexpectedly in a pot where something else was growing.

Probably easiest to buy a plant, these are available for purchase from some garden centres.

Which is the best month to collect seeds from this tree? Will it have a seed pod or is the seed contained in the berry-like fruit?

Your best bet yet again would be to ask at Agri Co-op because brand names vary and you might want to consider a product that deals with more than one pest.

It is also possible to build traps for them, a quick search in Google will be useful. Importantly, never leave any fallen fruit underneath trees, or mouldy/rotting fruit in the tree.

Thanks for the tips MG (I still need to go buy Chemol).

I have managed to almost completely eliminate aphids by controlling ants, no easy feat considering the thousands I have ready to pounce. I have successfully used a mix of boric acid and sugar as bait.

The permethrin bandages around the trunks have worked a treat and guarantees at least 4 weeks of protection.

I'm thinking that the fruit fly is something that needs to dealt with now, am I right and if so what should I be using?

Thank you!

Has anyone bought this book?

http://www.eve.com.mt/2014/11/11/the-pleasures-of-gardening-in-the-maltese-islands-by-maurice-mizzi/

What is your opinion? At €50 I want to be sure that I get value for money.

That's the plan, it has been done for several years now and we intend to do it this year as well.
