The Uplyme and Lyme Regis Horticultural Society is hosting a film screening at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis on Sunday, January 12 at 3pm.

The film Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.

Piet Oudolf is an internationally renowned Dutch garden designer, described as 'a botanical David Attenborough'.

The 75 minute film tracks him in his own gardens at Hummelo in the Netherlands, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire him, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania.

Closer to home for us, the film follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth in Somerset, a garden he considers his best work yet.

Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf, Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis, Sunday, January 12 3pm. The bar opens beforehand at 2pm. Everyone is welcome. Tickets are only available online and cost £6 plus £1.06 booking fee at
