A guide to choosing the right size

All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready. 

Any Bare Root Items - Availability means Available for supply from early November to May.

Any Container grown items - Availability means Available for supply now. 

All our Raspberry canes are ministry inspected.

Autumn fruiting varieties, i.e. Autumn Bliss, Polka, Fallgold, Joan J and Little Red Princess are completely cut to ground level during the winter.

Summer fruiting varieties, These fruit on the second year cane (normally darker than the one year cane)The second year cane is pruned back down to soil level in the winter after they have fruited leaving the one year old cane for next summers crop.


Plant the canes about 18” (45 cm) apart with 6 ft (1.8 m) between the rows. Avoid planting the young canes too deeply, a covering of 3” (7.5 cms) over the roots is ample. Cut the canes down to 2” (5 cms) above the soil immediately after planting (bare root canes only, Do not cut down the 1 litre potted canes). In the spring when the new shoots appear from beneath the soil the 2” stub should be cut away. The young canes are tied into a wire fence system for cropping the following season. Subsequently all canes which have fruited are cut out at ground level immediately after fruiting.

I had 3 plants from you in Dec 2015. These were planted outdoors and have this year given an exceptional crop. I have just picked 1kg from them and will be able to pick the same again every 3 days. Thoughly recommended.

This was delivered in August 2017 and I even had a few fruits this year ! Nice decorative little plant.

We bought a tiny plant in July 2016, it didn't have fruit that year rather expectedly but the plant has grown very well in a 15-L pot. This year, we had two small crops of lovely raspberries (one early summer, one getting ready now). Fruit taste and quality are amazing. The size may be small but every single fruit we had was sweet. Would recommend to anyone who wants an easy growing raspberry variety.

My second review for these; following fruiting this year, my first Ruby beauty yielded about 40 lovely tasting rapsberries. I had purchased a couple more but these were a little smaller and have grown well but should fruit next year; when first growing they had larger leaves than my first one but then they developed smaller ones after this growing stage. Have been recommending Ruby Beauty to lots of my friends.

Ordered in 2015, one plant has filled out the large patio pot this summer and fruiting well.

I ordered three to plant in an Earthbox. I am new to growing raspberries so I was delighted to be able to access advice on-line, both before and after delivery. The plants were well packed and have grown so well that I am going to order again next year and plant another Earthbox. My grandchildren love to pick blueberries (previously purchased from Blackmoor) when they visit and are looking forward to next year's fruit!

A sturdy little plant arrived within a few days, beautifully packaged. It's settled in nicely and I am looking forward to tasting some delicious fruit. Thank you.

Delivery was very speedy. However the size of my cane is about 4 inches ! I wasn't expecting it to be this small even if its a healthy plant. the other thing is that pot was cracked, not sure how this happened but I don't mind as the plant was not damaged. It would help to know what size your cane is going to be as the 1.3 litre does not give a good indication of the plant size you will get.

I bought three of this. Timely delivery unlike some other nurseries. Very well packed. Very health looking plants. Thank you very much.

Have this one potted as I'd love to get some more canes but didn't have space for them. I'm realyl impressed with how hardy it seems and there are already some new leaves present which gives me hope that Spring is coming!

As I only have a small garden, I have been waiting for this type of raspberry to grow in a pot. The plant looks very healthy, packaging and communication from you was excellent. Many thanks.

Plants ordered on Sunday and arrived today. Very well packaged and in perfect condition when opened. Very pleased with my purchase and looking forward to some fresh Raspberries. Never grown them before as I have never had the space in my small garden. Potted into a larger pot and now on my patio. Thank you Blackmoor
