The 15th edition of the International Garden Festival opens on June 28 and will present 22 contemporary gardens at Les Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens. Imagined by sixty-five designers from Seoul, Santiago de Compostela, NewYork, Philadelphia, Basel, Amsterdam, Paris and Montreal, these installations invite visitors to enter and contemplate new ways of seeing the landscape and the world.

Aligned on a sunny esplanade or huddled in green rooms, the installations evoke the playful, the poetic and the delicacy and complexity of life. Through such installations as Courtesy of Nature, Sacré potager, Orange Secret, Pink Punch, Méristème, Cone Garden, Afterburn and Bal à la Villa, visitors are transported to new universes on an exceptional environment on the edge of St. Lawrence River.
