Raspberry Ruby Beauty
I bought raspberry Ruby Beauty last autumn from Thompson and Morgan (I have three in a very large pot). These are described as a dwarf (compact, patio) variety with canes under 1 meter, multibranching and thornless. They are summer fruiting on previous year growth so if I understand this correctly, they won't fruit this year.
But they either aren't as described or they are not Ruby Beauty. My plants are growing long canes, the longest one is over 2m (several shorter ones are around 1m). They are not too branching. And they are extremely thorny.
I tried to train them to contain them close to the planter but it resulted in several broken canes and my hands full of thorns (gloves don't help much). Do you think I should cut the canes back a bit to force them into branching? Anyone here growing this variety who could advise if I have the correct plants or something else?
