We would like to welcome Candide as our new Gold Sponsor and thank them for their support!

Candide is an app for plant lovers to access trustworthy advice, using advanced technology in a uniquely friendly space. An encyclopaedia, a marketplace, a virtual garden tour guide and social network all in one place. No matter what someone might wish to do in a garden: discover, enjoy, plant or plan – Candide can help.

What sets Candide apart is the application of technology combined with a huge, engaged community of plant enthusiasts. Candide, the company, have been based in central Bristol, since inception in 2017. They planted their seed when Andrew Philbrick, on sabbatical after successfully selling Africa’s largest financial data company, met a friend building a small plant community, and together couldn’t understand why mobile apps so poorly serve plants, gardens and gardening. Three years later, they are a large team of engineers, content writers and growth marketers germinating the first genuinely global gardening ecosystem.

We very much look forward to working with Candide over the next year.
