Sebastien Chabot

Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounted his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his 20-acre English-style garden and summer estate. He welcomed a film crew to the site for the first time in 2009.

Nestled among 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 enchanting place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century.

Through the words of Cabot and his family, together with gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave rise to one of the greatest gardens in the world.
