The plant was created with Frank?P Matthews in Worcestershire and was entered into the trade show in Birmingham before being announced as the winner yesterday.
Adam Dunnett, sales and marketing director for Wyevale Nurseries, said: “We’re so thrilled that Raspberry ‘Ruby Beauty’ was named as the winning plant in the New Product Award for Best Plant, Seeds and Bulbs. It is the first ever dwarf, patio raspberry and is perfect for the modern day gardener.”
He continued: “It reaches just 1m high and 50cm wide. The plant is thornless and does not need caning or support. Each plant will produce approximately 1.5kg of fantastically flavoured fruit from June onwards. We advise to plant one into a 10 litre pot or three into a 40 litre. It is an ideal plant for the patio, kitchen or wildlife gardens.”
