Vaccinium vitis-idaea also known as the lingonberry or cowberry is a bushy evergreen shrub that is closely related to a Blueberry. It produces bell-shaped, pink-flushed white flowers, followed by the juicy deep red berries which are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants.

 

The berries have a distinctive tart flavour and are often used in baking, making preserves or sweetened with a little sugar before eating.

 

Perfect for containers on a patio where it will give year round interest or at the front of a ericaceous border.

How to take care of Vaccinium vitis-idaea

Water the root ball upon receipt. If you want to grow in the open ground, the soil must be well drained humus(rich dark organic material) acidy and also retains some moisture, if your soil is not acidic plant them in containers or ask your local garden centre for rhododendron soil.

Keep the plants in a sunny location, sheltered from strong winds. Once established they need little water, sometimes rainwater is sufficient but do not allow the soil to dry out especially during their flowering and bearing fruit season.

Apply fertilizer in growing season when you see new growth. Apply a mulch in winter to protect them from the frost or if they are in a container, place the container in a greenhouse. They will bear fruit in the 2nd or 3rd year, on the more vigorous shoots from August onwards.

Plants need little pruning the first three years. On mature plants cut back some old branches that have borne fruit to the base and remove damaged or diseased shoots. Best planted in groups for pollination.
