Who is Candide for?

In a word, everyone. The horticulturist, budding young green fingers, hobbyist gardeners, small-space urban gardeners, garden-to-table enthusiasts, and even those who just want to keep a pot-plant alive.

Candide is a community-driven app built by gardeners for gardeners, and it’s transforming the way we interact with our green spaces.


"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!"


"The app gives me the pleasure of seeing other peoples gardens, ideas and interesting plants from more than just South Africa. Best of all I am able to share my knowledge I have built-up while working in the fruit export industry and in my own home garden."


"I love the Candide APP because it's filled with beginners, ameteur & professional gardeners that create a wonderful community together. In my spare time I enjoy discovering the different plant species, note Candide itself will always leave you inspired for the next day."
