  • An impressive 1.5kg of fruit per plant
  • Early summer crops - pick from June with wonderful flavour
  • Thornless variety for easy pickings

A completely new concept for growing Raspberries! These compact dwarf raspberry canes reach just 1m (3') high, making them perfect for large patio containers and smaller gardens. Try planting 1 raspberry plant per 10 litre pot, or 3 to a 40 litre pot.

The multi branching floricanes of Raspberry 'Ruby Beauty'® bear superb yields of deliciously sweet berries that we've come to expect from modern varieties. Thornless stems and a short stature make harvesting quick and easy too. Being low to the ground they can be netted with ease to protect the crops from greedy birds and the sturdy stems won't need supporting either - perfect for the low maintenance garden. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Grow summer fruiting raspberry plants in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Plant this dwarf variety at a distance of 50cm (20") apart. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. When growing dwarf raspberries in containers, plant 1 raspberry plant per 10 litre pot, or 3 to a 40 litre pot.

The short stems of Raspberry 'Ruby Beauty'® need little support, except to prevent particularly heavy crops from bending the canes.

Water summer fruiting raspberries well for the first year until plants are fully established. When berries begin to develop, place a net over the plants to protect the crop from birds. In autumn, prune the canes which have fruited over the summer to ground level leaving the remaining canes in place for the following year. Aim to have 6 to 8 fruiting canes per plant. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the canes in spring. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.

  1. Raspberry bushes

    By Verna Hawley 17-09-2016

    Bought some raspberry bushes this year and they are doing fantastic, however, there several suckers growing, some near the base but some about a foot away from the base. How should I deal with these please.

    Bought some raspberry bushes from T and M this year and they are doing fantastic, however, there are several suckers growing, some close to the base but some about one foot away from the base. How should I deal with these please.
