Can anyone provide information about bilberries and cowberries regarding
their habitat and nutrient requirements.

cowberry  - Vaccinium vitis-idaea
Mountain Cowberry - Vaccinium vitis-idaea minus
Shore Cowberry - Vaccinium vitis-idaea majus

Generally Blueberries, Huckleberries, Bilberries, and Deerberries are in the
Vaccinium or Gaylussacia genus.  They require full sun, and well drained
acidic peaty or sandy soil.  They don't do well at all in alkaline soil.
