    Default Raspberry Ruby Beauty

    I have just ordered 3 plants ready for next season.

    Whilst I know this patio raspberry is fairly new I wondered if anyone had grown it and if they had any advice.

    Cheers Potty

    Thanks, They say about 3ft which I have allowed for any taller may be a problem in one spot.

    Dispatched from Marshalls on Thursday arrived this morning. Three nice green, healthy looking plants in 9cm pots with good root formation. Well packaged so no damage, already in their permanent containers.

    I know that this is an older thread but I was doing a search on Ruby Beauty to see what folks think of them

    I got 5 plants last year from T&M via a tesco clubcard offer, just small plants in 9cm pots, I didnt get any fruit but the plants seem quite vigorous and grew quite well.

    This is them at the moment, at the front in 30l pots, hopefully get some good fruit this year.
