Ruby Beauty is the world's first compact raspberry. This dwarfing raspberry plant is thornless and grows to just 1 metre tall producing 1.5kg of fruit from each plant. This multi branching plant requires little or no support and is therefore perfect for the patio and an exciting addition to your borders. It makes a unique edible hedge too!
- Garden care:This is a floricane raspberry so will fruit on last year's stems in the summer. In the autumn, cut down this years fruiting canes to the ground leaving the other new canes for the following years crop. Feed during the growing season with a general purpose fertiliser and water regularly during the summer. You may need to protect the ripening fruit from being eaten by birds, but as this is a low growing variety netting is easy.
