At the age of 86 and shortly before his passing, Frank Cabot - influential gardener, horticulturalist, philanthropist and founder of the Garden Conservancy - opened his personal garden, Les Quatre Vents in Quebec, to a film crew for the first time.
This visually stunning film captures Cabot’s extraordinary twenty-acre garden, rich with plant species and gardening-style influences curated during his world travels. It reveals his quest to create what is widely considered to be a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century, and his innovative work to permanently protect other historically significant private gardens.
