New patio raspberry 'Groovy’ is just the thing for growing in a pot on your patio, but its golden-green leaves give a unique twist on the classic fruit plant.
Excellent as both a fruit producing and ornamental plant, it will look great mixed in beds and borders but is also absolutely ideal for growing in pots and containers thanks to its naturally dwarf habit.
From July it bears a bountiful crop of large sweet juicy red berries which are delicious eaten fresh from the bush and the canes are virtually thorn free making picking much more pleasant. What’s more, because of its compact nature it will only grow to just under a metre tall so its easy to pick from but also easy to keep covered up to stop the birds helping themselves.
Best of all, ‘Groovy’ is a primocane variety, bearing fruit on new wood therefore meaning you’ll get fruit in the very first year – no need to wait a year for crops! Easy to maintain, it requires just a little prune to simply remove old canes once they are older than 18 months and that’s it.
An easy to grow, care for and tasty Raspberry plant packed full of healthy nutrition that both tastes and looks great!

The plant looks like a mouse tale- very weak and doesn't look it will start growing.
