PollinatorAward

This superb recent introduction is the world's first compact raspberry.  Ruby Beauty is a dwarfing raspberry plant that is thornless and grows to just 1 metre tall, producing 1.5kg of fruit from each plant. This multi branching plant requires little or no support and is therefore perfect for the patio and an exciting addition to your borders. It makes a unique edible hedge too! Easy to grow producing an abundance of fruit with a traditional raspberry flavour. The fruit is produced early in the summer after which you simply cut off any old canes and allow the new ones to grow on for the next year's crop. As easy as that! Plants should be planted in a patio pot 1 plant per 10 litre pot or 3 per 40 litre pot. If planting a decorative hedge then allowing 70cm between plants is perfect! There really is no better way to harvest fresh delicious raspberries than from this delightful compact plant.

  • Suitable For: Container Growing

Raspberries grow best in free draining soils, if drainage is poor, grow on a raised bed. It is essential that they are planted in ground that has never grown raspberries or any plant of the genus Rubus before. Pruning is not required at planting time but in subsequent years, remove the canes which have fruited and train in the new canes. Support the canes on posts and wires. Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Water well in dry periods, and apply a growmore type fertiliser in the spring.
