It makes a unique edible hedge too! Ruby Beauty is easy to grow producing an abundance of fruit with a traditional raspberry flavour.
Ideal for any patio or garden.
The fruit is produced early in the summer after which you simply cut off any old canes and allow the new ones to grow on for the next year's crop.
Plants should be planted in a patio pot 1 plant per 10 litre pot or 3 per 40 litre pot.
If planting a decorative hedge then 70cm between plants is perfect!

Once planted, shorten the canes to about 23cm (9in).
Each spring, mulch well with well-rotted manure.
