Raspberry Ruby Beauty is a patio raspberry and it can be grown successfully in containers as well as in the garden. It is a thornless variety and will grow up to 1m and there is no need to support the canes.

Raspberries can be planted when the weather and soil conditions are favourable, avoiding frozen and waterlogged soils. If you plant in containers then we would recommend a good quality compost such as John Innes No 3. Allow at least a 10 litre pot per plant or 3 plants to a 40 litre pot and 70cms spacing if planted in the ground. If planted in the ground then choose a sunny position. Ideally the soil should be slightly acid with a pH of 6-6.5. The ground needs be well cultivated, incorporate a good amount of well-rotted manure or garden compost and keep weed free. Add fertiliser at the point of planting and again in March every year. Keep the plants well-watered especially in June and July when fruits and new canes develop.

Ruby Beauty is a summer fruiting (Floricane) type and the canes need to be cut back as soon as they have finished fruiting to make space for the next year’s canes. You can expect your first crop of raspberries in the second year from planting.

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Prefers full sun. After fruiting simply cut off old canes and allow the new ones to grow on.
