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").
The Raspberry 'Ruby Beauty' Complete Collection includes: 1 x 9cm potted plant, 1 patio pot + saucer and 100g of incredicrop™.
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

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. Each autumn, prune out the canes which have fruited over the summer, cutting them back to the base of the plant. Leave the remaining canes in place for fruiting in the following year. Aim to have 6 to 8 fruiting canes per plant. (If your plant does not fruit in the first year then there is no need to prune it at all until the following year, when you should remove only the canes which have produced fruit.) 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.
