Product Description

We are really excited to introduce the new breeding sensation in the world of raspberries and patio fruit growing at home.

'Ruby Beauty' is a new concept rapsberry variety - it is unique in that it produces masses of short branched canes that reach no more than 1M (3ft 3'), with the added bonus of being thornless. This thick clump of canes produces heavy crops of up to 1.5Kg per plant on established plants in 2 years or so, and starts frutiing in june, so is an early starter. Fruit flavour is good, 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. or why not make a raspberry hedge - plant about 70cm apart?

UPDATE - 'Ruby Beauty' has just been voted New Plant Introduction of 2015 at the prestigious GLEE Trade Fair in Autumn 2015.

Plant Information

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 Guide

Planting Advice for Ruby Beauty:

  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've 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 quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • 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 years crop.


 

Aftercare Advice for your Raspberry:

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