From what I have learned, one of the greatest threats to lingonberries is someone who insists on taking a hands-on approach, resulting in over-fertilization and over-watering. Other than preparation of the soil prior to planting and periodic weeding, they don't require much of anything. I do put mulch and wood chips down prior to winters, and I water them during lengthy droughts, but they have never shown signs of stress due to these dry periods so even that may be more than is necessary.

Anyone suggest places to get plants......... ?
I couldn't find any locally, so I ordered mine from two different places, in order to get as many varieties as possible: Raintree Nursery and Hartmann's Plant Company. I cannot attest that these are the best places to get them but mine arrived in good shape.
That's my opinion and I'm sticking with it unless someone yells at me or something.
