I love Candide because on it I can share my gardening joys and woes, get answers, give answers, be inspired and learn. It’s so rewarding to share with others who have the same passion!

Catherine

The photography is beautiful with lots of child friendly information. What I really like, though, is not only is there info on common plant related problems, but you can ask for help and advice on your own plants and the community will reply.

I’ve grown up in a gardening family, and the Candide app is giving me the chance to explore the joys of plants in a different way, connecting with other outdoor lovers across the world!
