OTHER: The Bilberry is a small shrub with edible fruit. They are similar in many ways to a blueberry, but the pulp of the bilberry is blue/purple/red, while blueberries have white pulp. Bilberries are also softer & juicier than blueberries. The fruit can be eaten raw, dried for later, made into jams, or used in deserts just like you would a blueberry in pies, muffins, candies, etc. The plants provide wildlife habitat, & birds, squirrels, & other small critters will love to help you “harvest” the berries :)

I spent $85 at this store but the package never showed up. The seller blamed the carrier and the carrier blamed the seller. Either way I’m out $85 and never got the seeds I paid for. I asked the seller for a discount on a repeat package as I wanted the seeds but that’s when the seller magically stopped responding. Very disappointed.
