Product Information

'Ruby Beauty' is a new concept rapsberry patio fruit variety – a unique breeding sensation in that it produces masses of short-branched canes that reach no more than 1m (3ft 3in), with the added bonus of being thornless.

Its thick clump of canes produces heavy crops of up to 1.5kg on each established plant in 2 years or so, and starts fruiting in June, so is an early starter.

This award-winning variety has an excellent fruit flavour, as demanded by today's consumers, making this the perfect all-rounder.

For best results, grow in a large pot about 30cm or so in diamneter, allowing room for growth over many years. Picking is at 80-100cm tall, so easy to net and easy to pick – perfect for children, too. Why not make a raspberry hedge for an unusual garden feature? Just plant them about 70cm apart.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot ready for planting.

Top Tips

  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring, but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out.

 

Care Information

Planting Advice for Ruby Beauty:

  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you are planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to refill once the shrub is in place.
  • We have found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges, tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting, soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish more quickly.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level as the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the rootball.
  • Water well.
  • Perfect for growing in a container, simply place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast, then use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

 Pruning Advice for Ruby Beauty:

  • This floricane raspberry will fruit on last year's stems in the summer.
  • In the autumn, cut down this year’s fruiting canes to the ground, leaving the other new canes for the following year's crop.

Aftercare Advice for your Raspberry:

  • Feed during the growing season with a general-purpose fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone, and water regularly during the summer.
  • Cover the ripening fruit with netting to protect from birds.
