Who is Candide for?

In a word, everyone. The horticulturist, head gardeners, budding young green fingers, amateur gardeners, allotment fans, the urbanista, pot to plate enthusiasts, house plant aficionados, we could go on!

Built by gardeners for gardeners, Candide is transforming the way we interact with our gardens because gardening is the root of all happiness.


"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!"


"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!"


"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."

About Candide

Candide, drawing inspiration from Voltaire's novel of the same name, is a growing movement that encourages us all to reconnect with our gardens, and share the joy of gardening. We believe that gardening is the root of happiness, and cultivates well-being for the mind and soul.
