Dwarf Patio Raspberry ‘Ruby Beauty’

First berries are about to ripe.

‘Ruby Beauty’ is dwarf raspberry shrub that grows just 90cm (3ft) tall, has no thorns and usually needs no support. In spite of its dwarf height, it produces about 1.5kg (3lb 6oz) of raspberries, all with traditional raspberry size and flavor.

I grow it in a 40 cm (16in) container in vegetable soil and fertilize once a week. It get sun from morning until 5 PM and is doing amazing!

The small size makes it easy to tuck into my vegetable garden.

Window boxes on the south facing wall are great for strawberries.
I’m thinking about getting three more for basil and other herbs.

For a long time I had given up on the idea of growing veggies. Our back garden doesn’t get enough sun and our two bunnies would get to the plants before I did.

One day I was scrolling though photos of Ulla Molin’s garden when I stumbled upon a picture of here veggie garden. It was small and its structure reminded me of my front entrance.

A couple of cheap raised beds, containers and window boxes later I had a vegetable garden.
