Description: Derek Jarman's garden is in the flat expanse of shingle that faces the nuclear power station in Dungeness, Kent. He mixed the flint, shells and driftwood of Dungeness with indigenous and introduced plants. This book is his own record of how this garden evolved, from its beginnings in 1985.
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.
