Looks like Serissa, but you need more opinions.

Looks like it's from Australia and New Zealand, so I would think it could do well in the Mediterranean.

syzigium sprout readily on bare wood if you need to prune hard. Responds very well to light trimming too. We usually repot and root prune in warmer months and I have cut roots really hard with no problem. Should do well in Malta.

If they have told you it will be OK for 2 years then it probably will be. It looks OK in the photo.
Test whether the tree is root bound by pressing down on the soil with a finger. If the soil can be compressed a bit it is still fine. If the soil is packed really tight and cannot be compressed by a finger the pot is getting full of roots and you should consider repotting soon.

Welcome to Crazy!

Had a teacher once who told us a story about culture that kept Rac's. How they were these beasts that folks would keep in pens, then let them go and they would run people over and kill them...the whole thing sounded so stupid and ridiculous, to let these things destroy us like that, then he flipped it and said we do the same thing with Cars.

It was a good lesson.

Isn't it a little early for the nectar of the Gods to be helping us philosophize.....
