Do you know where I can find Festuca ovina (Sheep's Fescue) in Malta please? This plant is from the Poaceae family. It seems to be a very common plant all around Europe & the Mediterranean but not in Malta!
Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

This species is not part of the Maltese biodiversity, so I think you should search for the plant abroad. I think you would be able to buy it from some online shop.
Alternatively, in Malta we have a lot of Poa arundinacea, plentiful, and probably a good substitute for your larvae.
