Excellent App

I have been in this app for a number of months now. It is a great for showcasing your plants and communicating with people from all over the world with similar interests. You can call it the facebook of plants. The plant identification is good, not always 100% correct but it develops as you use it. What I like is that if you don’t think the identification they suggest is correct you can ask other members. It also tels you about places of interest to visit in your area as well as events.
I love this app. The more you participate the more rewarding it is.

Stunning app!

After coming across Candide I realized that I’ve wasted money on other “gardening” apps. What a stunning and user friendly app! Everything I’ve searched for so far is available in GREAT, easy to understand detail. Well done!

Fabulous Florals ,


The app is tailored to each region (ex. USA, UK,ZA), but you can see posts from around the globe & short vids. There are video guides, indigenous plants, plant collections (ex. Shade-loving or grasses), a marketplace to sell old items and save icons to store helpful profiles. Local shops and naturalists write short articles each week in Discover to keep you up to date and it is all FREE! The app is also a digital ticket to select gardens. The ID feature is truly only a small part. Been using the app for 3 years and loving it.
