Description

Pinks are invaluable for their scent, their incredible vase life, and that their petals are edible, so you can decorate salads and puddings to your heart's content. 'Devon Red Carpet' is a rich, true red with soft grey-green foliage.

Care Tips

Feed with rose or tomato fertiliser and keep as moist as possible although they do tolerate dry weather once established. Deadhead to promote further flowering.
