The world's first compact Raspberry Plant!
Brand new variety - Ruby Beauty.
Thornless, Dwarf plants.
East to grow
Will produce approximately 1.5kg of fruit from every plant.
Grown in 14cm large pots, the plants are approximately 20cm tall and will grow to 1 meter high.
Ruby Beauty raspberries are a fantastic addition to your garden because the canes never grow taller than a metre and are multi-branching so you reap tremendous yields - up to 1.5 kg - from one plant - of sweet, firm, scarlet raspberries all through June and July.
The canes do not need support because they are short and sturdy making it easier to pick the fruit and to net the plant. What is more, they are entirely thornless too
Ruby Beauty is obviously perfect for those who have limited space in their garden or are restricted to just a terrace or balcony.
They would also make a wonderful present for any budding horticulturalists or cooks in the family.
Three will eventually fill a 40 litre pot and you will be harvesting summer raspberries with the best of them.
If possible, use John Innes number 3 compost which dries out more slowly than multipurpose and is also heavier so it adds stability to your pot.
As the raspberries begin to change colour you will need to net them to protect against birds, but this is the work of a heartbeat since the plants are so compact with no supporting canes needed or fussing around with wires. Once a cane has fruited, cut it down and wait for next year's cane to grow in its place.
