Anyone know where I can purchase Vaccinium Myrtillus (Bilberry)
plants with plugs or pots (I have the worst luck with bare root).
The only place I could find with Duck Duck Go was a place
in the UK.
many sites are calling these blueberries and
they need acidic and moist conditions (edges of
bogs are where we find them around here).
i found many places selling them (try
searching with ecosia using phrase
Vaccinium Myrtillus for sale
There is a whole section over here on the confusion
Here is a great growing guide:
I will have a problem with #2:
Select a planting location for your bilberries that
offers full sun in cooler zones and partial sun with
afternoon shade in warmer zones. Ensure that soil is
well-draining and acidic.
I will pour vinagar down the hole a mix it up and let set
for a few months before planting.
The other problem I am having is #1:
Purchase container-raised bilberries rather than bare-root
stock as these perennials do not like to have their roots
And I can not find any for sale. :'(
