About this title

Synopsis:

Derek Jarman created his own garden in the flat, bleak expanse of shingle that faces the nuclear power station in Dungeness, Kent. A passionate gardener from childhood, he combined his painter's eye, his horticultural expertise and his ecological convictions to produce a landscape which mixed the flint, shells and driftwood of Dungeness; sculptures made from stones; the area's indigenous plants; and shrubs and flowers introduced by Jarman himself. This book, the last he ever wrote, is his own record of how this garden evolved, from its beginnings in 1985 to the day of his death in 1994.

Review:

Derek Jarman's Garden is a personal account of how Jarman's garden evolved, from its earliest beginnings in 1986 through to his death in February 1994. Jarman, against all odds, produced a breathtakingly beautiful garden in the most inhospitable of places. A passionate gardener since childhood, Jarman combined his painter's eye, his horticultural expertise and his ecological convictions to produce a landscape which combined the flints, shells and driftwood of Dungeness; sculptures made from stones, old tools and found objects; the area's indigenous plants; and shrubs and flowers introduced to the area by Jarman himself. Howard Sooley's photographs capture the garden during all its different stages and in every season of the year. Photographs from various angles reveal the garden's complex geometric plan, its magical stone circles, and its beautiful and bizarre sculptures. Derek Jarman's Garden will appeal to all those who are themselves practicing gardeners, as well as any who would aspire to become gardeners -- not matter where they live, or under what conditions, or with whatever resource limitations they may be faced with. -- Midwest Book Review
