Vaccinium Myrtillus

Hi All,
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 )

Hi Songbird,
There is a whole section over here on the confusion with blueberries:

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 disturbed.
And I can not find any for sale. :'(
