The Candide app is a buzzing community of people with a passion for horticulture.
Free to download, it’s a hive of inspiration and knowledge where you can take a picture of a plant to identify it or ask the green-fingered community any garden-related problem. You can even use Candide to find new gardens to explore. Here at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, we have worked with Candide to record our very own audio tour. Listen to Wayne Williams (Head Gardener) and Chris Howell as they guide you around the garden (or listen from the comfort of your phone wherever you are), sharing our hidden history and what they think makes our garden so extraordinary.
Find our full audio tour on the Candide gardening app. Listen along as you’re guided around the grounds, unearthing the rich history of our garden.
Join the Candide community to share beautiful photos from our garden. Identify plants in seconds and get advice on how to grow them at home. Learn from expert garden writers and follow daily updates from the horticultural world.
