    Default Vaccinium vitis-idaea (lingonberry or cowberry)

    I don't have experience growning fruit (except strawberries and rhubarb). I wanted a small berry plant and I think lingonberry will be perfect, because it does not grown too much and it's hardy. I have been looking for a plant or seeds and I could not find any. Anyone know where can I buy it? It must be an on-line shop.

    Also, any other berry plants can be grown in containers or big pots (outdoors)?

    Thank you!

    Blueberries would be good in large pots as they like acid soil and you could provide that in a pot. Some of the patio fruit trees can be grown in pots too
    Here are some lingonberry stockists Lingonberry 'Ida' - Other Berry Plants - Thompson & Morgan Lingonberries - The Lingonberry Lingonberries - Chris Bowers I'm sure there are others if you do a search.
    Look on the bright side

    Thank you, unfortunately, they do not deliver to Northern Ireland. I found lots of companies, but they do not deliver or they charge lot. Maybe I should look for seeds and forget about getting a plant.

    Try janelane nursery they have lingonberry, I actually order few from them, but not delivered yet. So cannot comment on the quality of the plants, but price very reasonable.

    The price is good and they have lots of tempting berry plants. I am not sure if they deliver to NI and how much it will costs. I will contact them too. Much appreciated!
