Buy raspberry Ruby Beauty ('NR7') (PBR) patio raspberry Ruby Beauty: The world's first compact raspberry.

This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    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! Large, delicious raspberries from summer onwards

  • 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.

Hi, this is the third summer of Ruby Beauty and it is not fruiting very well. I can also see ants crawling into the plant and a number of stems with curling leaves - possibly farming aphids? Not sure if the latter is the cause of the former issue? Could you please advise?

Hello, There are a number of reasons why this may happen. If it is growing in a pot, it may need to be moved into a larger one with some fresh compost. Also, it is important that the plant gets loads of sun, is kept well fed and watered and the developing fruits are protected from birds. Finally, each year, the stems that have produced the fruit this summer, should be cut right back to the base in autumn.
