The Times: “A small garden that is joyfully unconventional. A series of homemade pergolas, living tunnels, and hedge gaps move you from one area to another, and the effect is pleasingly disorientated.”
The Guardian: “Art of the matter ….. by midsummer everything has knitted together giving a wild romantic feel.
Country Living: “Sleeping Beauty’s cottage …. Imaginative planting combinations and ingenious ways with recycled materials have transformed a tangle of leafy growth into a bold and beautiful garden.
Gardening Which: “The nursery is tantalisingly well stocked. Pinsla blends informally with the natural beauty of its surroundings … imaginative planting.”
Gardens Monthly: “Entering the garden is like embarking on a journey into another world. A garden deep in the woods …. that has harnessed the magic of nature.”
Inside Cornwall: “A wonderfully secluded and romantic garden … enchanting and delightful … the pathways are an outstanding feature at Pinsla. They are a decorative mix of slates and cobbles set into concrete, which also has imprinted patterns at intervals. Winding round the beds and forming little circles at junctions, they seem to beckon the visitor on, the plants and flowers tumbling over the granite boulders flanking the paths.”
Cornish Country Gardener: “If Pinsla has a raison d’etre it is to show that a garden can be romantic, relaxing and inspiring all at the same time … A warm and informal ambience allied to exuberant and vibrant planting.”
Cornwall Today: “The plant sales area is one of great temptation.”
