RB, it seems that you have not read admins' post or did not understand his point (or maybe you are a trapper yourself ?) He said that the public will report the trapper to ALE, and then if ALE comes and find the irresponsible, part of the fine is given to the public. There is no need of a testimony ...

This is a really clever idea! It will work without any doubt. Instead bottle pickers in the street we would have people roaming the countryside. Well the concept of this idea is that it will make a sane hunter/trapper to think it 100 times before he lays his nest!

It should be implimented asap!

MWP, I think you were right from the beg. Gladiolus (as RB confirmed) and Romulea. I think the leaves are those tiny, linear ones near the bud. So I suggest you follow it as it maybe R. melitensis.

Sorry for my absentism, quite busy at Univ. Strange, but my tutor at the Univ (the famous one) claims that C. acinaciformis does not exist in Malta and it is a mis-identification of C. edulis. The difference according Flora Europaea lies in the colour of the filaments of the stamens, and the way the...

I have never seen this Asparagus around! It is a very strange species for this family, expecting it to have needle-like 'leaves' or very slender ones.

MWP, how can I edit my posts?

I want to add that despite its nice flowers, this plant is rather invasive and should be controlled, since it leaves little space for native species
