Description

I've been on the lookout for a large-flowered, highly scented deep pink sweet pea and 'Barry Dare' stood out in our trials. It’s a stunner, strong and punchy. 8/10 scent.

Care Tips

Plant seedlings out during a mild spell March-May, providing support. Tie the stems into your framework on a regular basis and pinch out tendrils.
