The Gardener

An intimate tour of one of the world’s foremost private gardens, Les Quatre Vents.

Co-presented by Royal Botanical Gardens.The Gardener is a documentary reflecting on the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives. Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his 20-acre English style garden and summer estate that was opened to a film crew for the first time ever.

“Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world’s foremost private gardens. Created over three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century.” - Quebec City Film Festival

Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers as well as former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson, this visually stunning film explores this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world.
