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.

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.

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.

Flowers and fruit first year plant 2016-11-06

Flowers in abundance fruit just starting to show. First year plant in a container. Extremely pleased cant wait to harvest.

Raspberry bushes 2016-09-17

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.

Raspberry bush suckers 2016-09-17

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.

No Fruit 2016-08-28

Difficult to rate as I got the plant May 22nd and put in a 15cm pot. No fruit at all but reading the response above there does not always receive fruit. Do I need to prune it and if so what? Also should it go into a cold frame in winter.

T&M replied on 2016-08-28: Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to learn of your disappointment with your purchase. At your earliest convenience please contact our Customer Care Department at ccare@thompson-morgan.com, one of our agents will be more than happy to look into this further for you.

RUBY BEAUTY POT RASPBERRY 2016-08-07

Really pleased with the first crop of raspberries from my bush but I can't find out if you have to prune them back at all like you do with cane varieties, can anyone help me please.

T&M replied on 2016-07-08: Thank you for your review. 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.

Good crop 2016-07-29

Have harvested more than a kilo of beautifully flavoured fruit from one plant given to me as a Mother's Day gift in 2015. No fruit last year, but left last year's canes to fruit this year. Have cut to base canes which fruited this year and will feed new canes in spring. Very happy!

T&M replied on 2016-07-29: Thank you so much for your review. I am so pleased that you have been happy with your Raspberry Ruby Beauty. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.

Raspberry Ruby Beauty 2016-06-30

Our 2 plants are like Ryan's above. They have bushed quite well, but absolutely no signs of fruit at all. Would this be quite usual for the first year? They are in two separate pots on our patio. Do you think all will be well next year? I presume I don't prune anything at all? Jane Somerset

T&M replied on 2016-06-30: "Thank you for your review. Yes it sounds perfectly fine! Ruby Beautys don't fruit in their first year and will not require any pruning. This should be explained within the cultural instructions your received.

No sign of fruit ? 2016-06-27

Disappointed so far, plant has bushed out quite beautifully, but no sign of fruit at all!

Loads of fruit from plants 2016-06-14

I initially was disappointed with the plants i bought last year as they had no fruit what so ever last year. This year its a different storey. Loads and loads of raspberrys have appeared, all we need now is some sun! Im therefore changing my rating to a 5

T&M replied on 2016-06-15: Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that you have been happy with your purchase. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.

No fruit 2016-05-30

This is my second year, although the plants look healthy, there's no sign of any flowers or berries. Should I be doing something different.

T&M replied on 2016-05-31: Thank you very much for your review. I am very pleased that you have been happy with your purchase and thank you so much for taking the time to let us know. As with all patio plants make sure the compost doesn't dry out and feed your raspberries regularly with a high potash fertiliser throughout the growing season to encourage fruiting. Please contact our Customer Care Department at ccare@thompson-morgan.com, one of our agents will be more than happy to help you further information. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.

Ruby Beauty 2016-04-07

Now into my 3rd Summer. I can't remember if there was fruit in the first year but this year and last there was plenty of velvety sweet raspberrys.

Good plant but no sign of flowers yet. 2016-01-06

Recieved my large patio raspberry plant in auturm. Plant in great condition. But no sign of either flowers or berries yet. As i live in Scotland things maybe a little late in coming on so shall keep my fingers crossed; tho going by previous reviews I could be disappointed.

Raspberry Ruby Beauty 2015-12-07

Lovely plants, I purchased three small and one large. The yield on the large has been all of 8 raspberries in the first year, so not worth the extra investment really. The berries are perfectly formed, but the taste is sadly lacking in flavour. I'll give them another year, and if the taste is no better ( or I can't get decent jam out of them) They will be scrapped. But both plants and raspberries look really good.

T&M replied on 2015-07-13: Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear that the plants have grown well, although I am sorry to learn of your disappointment with the fruit. If you would like to contact our Customer Care Department at ccare@thompson-morgan.com, one of our agents will be more than happy to help with any queries at all.

No Fruit 2015-10-25

Received plants earlier in the year, and planted straight away in patio pots. Plants are healthy but I've had no fruit off them at all. Is this usual?

T&M replied on 2015-10-26: Thank you very much for your review. It is not unusual not to have any fruit in the first year. Your raspberry plants will have establish themselves this year and you should have a good crop next year.

Newbie 2015-09-25

My first potted raspberry plants have just been delivered. They look in good condition and I am really looking forward to growing them. Are they ok to put outside now or will I need to keep them in the greenhouse over winter?

T&M replied on 2015-09-28: Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am glad to hear that you have been happy with your order. Just for this first winter for them, I would suggest to keep them in the greenhouse over winter, as they will need protection from any particularly cold frosts. After this winter, they will be fine to be outside.

No Fruit 2015-08-27

I bought the 3 litre premium plant so that I would get some fruit this year. It's planted in a polytunnel so gets plenty of sun / warmth. Beautiful big healthy looking plant but alas no fruit either. Shame.

T&M replied on 2015-08-27: Thank you for your review. I am sorry to learn of your disappointment with your purchase. If you would like to contact our Customer Care Department at ccare@thompson-morgan.com, one of our agents will be more than happy to look in to this further for you.

Ruby Beauty patio raspberry 2015-08-27

My plants fruited the year after purchase. I bought some in 2014 which went into individual patio pots (grouped together) and these have fruited this year. The crop wasn't heavy but the fruit tasted OK and because I protected them with a raspberry beetle pheromone trap, there were no tiny maggots in them. Those plants I bought earlier this year went into the ground and did not bear any fruit but established their root systems. All plants 2014/2015 grew and required no support. As plants tend to do better in the ground than in pots and I look forward to comparing the pots ones v the ground ones next year. The only other protection I gave the patio pot plants were vine weevil nematodes because in the same vicinity I grow Oca plants in pots and vine weevils go for those and I don't want to run any risk of learning the hard way and losing the raspberry plants

T&M replied on 2015-08-27: Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear that you have been happy with your Raspberry plant. If there is anything we can help with, please do not hesitate to contact us at ccare@thompson-morgan.com

Fried first season 2015-08-09

My three plants arrived healthy and have given me a fair crop of lovely raspberries. I kept them in a container but am considering moving them to a raised bed, is this advisable?

T&M replied on 2015-09-08: Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am glad to hear that you have been happy with your order. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future. If you would like to contact our Customer Care team they will be happy to advise.

Raspberry Ruby Beauty 2015-08-09

I have had no fruit this year either and lost one of my 3 plants. If as it says in responses to other comments that fruit will appear in year 2 do we prune back the canes this year?

T&M replied on 2015-09-08: Thank you for your review. You will only need to prune back the canes that fruited, so I would suggest to leave the plant alone if you have not had any fruiting. If you do have any further queries, please do contact us at ccare@thompson-morgan.com, and one of our agents will be more than happy to help.

Good customer service 2015-08-06

Received my 3 plants in April (one was damaged and died after few days), was contacting customer service and received answer very quick. Replacement was sent in two weeks time in perfect condition. Thank you

T&M replied on 2015-06-09: Thank you very much for your kind words, they are greatly appreciated.

no raspberries what so ever 2015-07-30

I purchased 8 of the 9cm raspberry plants and received them may/june time, although the plants are lovely and green and have grown well, I have no raspberries what-so-ever, Im guessing they wont fruit now and will have to wait till next year! hopefully a bumper crop to come!

T&M replied on 2015-07-31: Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you have not receive fruit from your plants. I would advise to care for it as normal and I am sure that you will receive fruit next year. Please do not hesitate to contact us at ccare@thompson-morgan.com if you have any queries at all.

No Berries 2015-07-16

I paid extra for the Raspberry Ruby premium bush in January this year, it arrived and has been in a full sun position in the garden since arrival. Very disappointed that there is absolutely no fruit on it at all. Should.have just bought the cheaper version

A better replacement 2015-05-20

Like previous reviewers my first batch of 6 plants were very poor.Little plug plants all except one died within the first week . This having been aid customer care did replace the whole 6 plants with 9cm sized plants which arrived a few days ago. The trick with some of the plants, indeed any others , is not to post them out on a Friday where they will spend at least the weekend at the post office taking at least 4/5 days for delivery. The new plants were just about saved as they had dried out but have just about managed to save them (hopefully) Much frustration could be saved by T&M if they thought about posting out early in the week

T&M replied on 2015-05-28: Thank you for your review, I will pass your comments on to avoid customer disappointment in the future. However I am happy to hear that your replacement plants are better and I hope we can continue to be of service.

Raspberry "Ruby Beauty" 2015-05-05

2 out of 3 plants arrived damaged- maybe due to poor package and damaged box ( but do suspect damage via courier service) New growth broken on 2 of the plants. The 3rd better plant was flattened but is showing signs of recovery. No growing or after care instructions enclosed. Customer Care has been contacted and have been advised to give the plants 7 days of recovery and report back to C.C. My complaint has been noted by CC when i contacted them on receipt of damaged plants.

T&M replied on 2015-05-06: Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your purchase. I can confirm that your complaint has been noted so should the plants not recover, please get back in touch with our Customer Care Team.

Raspberry Ruby Beauty 2015-03-11

Whilst not expecting fruit first year I would appreciate guidance on what care they should now get, suggestion is after fruit they should be cut back, does this mean until fruit received do not cut them back or do you cut down anyway?

T&M replied on 2015-11-03: Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that you have been happy with your purchase and thank you so much for taking the time to let us know. As none of the canes have fruited this year don't cut them back. Simply 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. Please contact our Customer Care Department at ccare@thompson-morgan.com if you require any additional information. One of our agents will be more than happy to help you further.
