Spring gardening season is just about here! Have you seen the latest Aldi Gardenline selection? The Aldi garden deals are about to drop, and may even be sold out by the time you read this post. (Hopefully not, though!)
With March and April on the way, be sure to keep Aldi’s and LIDL’s garden offerings on your radar!
In fact, I recommend popping into the store when convenient just to make sure you don’t miss the perennial bulb deals / sales!
I lucked out at our local Aldi on Shoemaker Road in Pottstown in late March and early April a over the past few years. I found single fancy Dahlia bulbs for just $2.29 and a multi-pack for $6.99. Plus, some other garden stuff!
The first year, in April 2021, the bin was pretty decimated by the time I got there! I did pick up a few packs of other bulbs, including Asiatic lilies and pink and white gladiolus.
(Side note: I originally did not realize we here in PA Zone 6b may have to dig up our glads! The more you know… I remember my mom growing them but I don’t think we dug them up. Then again, I don’t know how many years we had them, either. Turns out some along the foundation of the house may survive! YMMV!)
Anyway, here’s the rundown of the Aldi Gardenline and prices from a few different trips I’ve made.
Aldi Garden Deals – Spring Finds
The Aldi Home and Garden section always seems to impress me. I’ve come home with lots of cool stuff over the years, including home storage organization gear that still to this day makes my life easier.
The Aldi Garden store department was so depleted when I arrived back in April 2021. I think they only had a small box of bulbs to dig through, a few fresh potted Easter flowers, and some garden edging.
At least I thought that was all they had – the cashier kindly called my attention to great deals on potting soil that I picked up for $3.99 per bag as well!
Aldi Flower Bulbs
Digging through the box of Aldi Gardenline flower bulbs is one of my favorite spring traditions!
Back in 2021, I found lots of great perennials to grow:
- White Prosperity Gladiolus, 15 count
- Red Traderhorn Gladiolus, 15 count
- Pink Gladiolus, 15 count
- Pink Peony
- Tropical Yellow Canna, 1 count
- Red Arabian Night Dahlia, 1 count
- And several others!
I came away with a few dahlias, pink and white gladiolus, and some yellow cannas!
Aldi Gardenline Sun and Shade Lovers Bulb Assortments were also available for $6.99.
This is where I grabbed the bags of dahlias! I noticed they also had a mix with echinacea / purple coneflower.
In April 2022, I made sure to head back to buy flower bulbs at Aldi early on – I did not want to miss this sale! When they sell out, they’re gone.
I got there in time to really enjoy the flower hunt!
I bought some cactus dahlias and other Gladiolus. Can’t wait to see them again this season!
Yes, I could not resist those pink tinged white gladiolus bulbs!
So glad I went a few different times in March and April to see what they had. I found a much better selection to choose from by planning in advance.
Mark your calendar and check frequently!
Aldi Plants – Potted for Planting!
When I went to the Aldi on Shoemaker Road, I saw live garden plants when I first entered the building. It took everything in me not to pick up a pot of pink tulips that caught my eye!
I realized sadly that it would just be food for the neighborhood groundhog who is terrorizing our yards and gardens the past few years.
By the end of my (very quick) shopping trip, I noticed that someone bought the tulips I’d been eyeing! (Good thing, too, because I might’ve fed the groundhog after all.)
Excitingly, I also found some potted plants tucked away during a visit on Valentine’s Day 2023!
Definitely saw some orchids and a few other leafy beauties.
I haven’t tried my luck with orchids recently so I passed on these.
But, now I want to head back and see if there’s any new Aldi garden bargains – plants, veggies, or other fun gardening products as we get later into the spring.
I’ll continue to update this post whenever I find more great Aldi Gardenline products and plants!
Succulents at Aldi
Normally I buy my succulents at Glick’s Greenhouse in Oley, but I find Aldi often has cute seasonal succulent planters.
I’ve purchased adorably festive mini succulent planters around the holidays.
I loved how mine looked like a little palm tree despite the winter season!
You can also find a wide selection of little pots with succulents at Aldi throughout the year.
These would make a great gift to cheer up a friend or as a little hostess gift when you go visiting!
One of my favorites was a glow-in-the-dark succulent back around Halloween, but I didn’t end up buying it.
Definitely next time!
Valentine’s Day February 2023 Finds
On Valentine’s Day 2023, I popped into Aldi to see what they had in the way of live plants. I found a few cool ones!
Of course, you can buy bouquets of roses at Aldi for Valentine’s Day. They were going for $9.99 each bouquet.
And check out this pretty Valentine’s Day flower arrangement! I love this and hope someone brightened someone else’s day by getting them some flowers. 🙂
They also had smaller bouquets of flowers for sale.
I seriously wanted to buy these stunning variegated tulips for $4.99 per bouquet!
I saw a few small succulent planters that seemed to be leftover from the holidays.
The poor hyacinths in vases looked really sad. I think they already bloomed.
I may stop back to see if they go on clearance. 🙂
I will have to go back and give a better look when I have more time. 🙂
Christmas Garden Deals at Aldi
You can count on finding Poinsettias and holiday succulents at Aldi if you time your trip right.
I already showed some of the holiday succulents for sale earlier in the post, but here is one more picture of the pretty options!
By the way, if you love succulents around Christmastime, you might also enjoy my post on DIY Succulent Ornament Planters!
Final Thoughts: ALDI Garden Deals
It was really fun checking out the Aldi garden bargains! I wish I’d gone sooner but I’m just glad I came away with some great deals on bulbs.
Another shopping trip led me to my favorite purchase to date – the Aldi Drop Over Greenhouse, which is actually a raised bed cover!
Now each year I’m marking my calendar for early March and checking the store on a weekly basis. The second Aldi store I went to – Pottstown by the Home Depot – ended up being a fruitless effort. Maybe I can catch the deals earlier!
One of the employees clued me in. She said they sold out so quickly and it’s usually the same time of year those Aldi garden deals drop.
I am still excited to head back to check out the Aldi Gardenline accessories throughout the season. Hopefully they’ll get some cool new stuff for the home and garden.
And of course, I am curious about the Aldi veggie garden offerings, if any. Plant and garden shopping is so much fun!
