Gardening with Aldi

EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated April 2019 with new products.

Aldi sells so many gardening products that we can’t list them all, but this is a roundup of a few of them. Check back later for more products and updates.

Gardenline 18.5 Gallon Tumbling Composter

Gardenline Tumbling Composter

Cost: $39.99

Thoughts: This is a smaller tumbling composter model, but it’s easy to assemble and easy to use, and it will help divert your kitchen and garden scraps from landfills. In return, you get healthy, rich garden soil or fertilizer for your lawn.

Gardenline Plant Stands

Gardenline Plant Stands

Cost: $9.99

Thoughts: These are smaller than I expected, but they seem to be sturdy and are good for holding a few potted plants. They also were quick and easy to assemble. They’re good to use on patios or porches, or I have them in my sun room.

Gardenline Everbearing Rasperries

Gardenline Everbearing Raspberries

Cost: $5.99

Thoughts: This features two raspberry plants packaged in a plastic bag inside a box. They’re not quite like the dormant, roots-only plants Aldi sometimes sells, because these do have some small leaves growing on them. They promise to bear fruit during their first year.

Gardenline Cleveland Select Pear Tree

Aldi pear tree

Cost: $14.99

Thoughts: This is an invasive species that spreads and choke out native species, and unfortunately it can be found for sale at Aldi and at other retailers like Home Depot and Lowe’s. We strongly recommend not buying this tree.

Gardenline Raised Garden Bed

Gardenline Raised Garden Bed

Cost: $29.99

Gardenline 4-Tier Greenhouse

Gardenline 4-Tier Greenhouse

Cost: $19.99

Thoughts: This is probably not built to last, but it’s fine for getting a head start on a few plants. The same greenhouse sells for around $35 on Amazon.

Gardenline Garden Soil

Gardenline Garden Soil

Cost: $2.49 for 1 cubic foot

Thoughts: In my experience, this seems to have no noticeable difference compared to Miracle-Gro. The only downside is that you have to fill a grocery cart with soil and haul it to your car, versus pulling your vehicle up to a stack of soil bags and loading them directly into your trunk at a nursery or large garden center. It claims to be natural and organic and to feed plants for up to four months.

Gardenline Heavy-Duty No Kink Garden Hose

Gardenline Heavy-Duty No Kink Garden Hose

Cost: $14.99

Thoughts: This measures 50 feet long. After using it for a season, it is capable of getting kinks like a lot of other garden hoses. It’s not a bad hose, though.

Gardenline PRO Series Hose Nozzle Assortment

Gardenline PRO Series Hose Nozzle Assortment

Cost: $6.99

Thoughts: This seemed like a good, inexpensive purchase, but it didn’t come with a warranty, and after a few months it stopped working.

Gardenline Ladies’ Garden Boots

Gardenline Ladies' Garden Boots

Cost: $12.99

Thoughts: These come in assorted varieties in sizes 7-10. I bought a pair for myself. While much of Aldi’s footwear tends to run small, these boots are actually pretty true to size. They are comfortable and easy to slip on when you need to run out to the garden.

Gardenline Fairy Gardening Kit

Gardenline Fairy Garden Kit

Cost: $12.99

Thoughts: This is a cute kit, but the box the garden goes in is not leak-resistant, and the garden fence didn’t hold up well in outdoor weather. Otherwise, it’s a fun set.

Gardenline Touchscreen Gardening Gloves

Gardenline Touchscreen Gardening Gloves

Cost: $6.99

Thoughts: These come in assorted varieties in sizes M-XL. I bought a set of garden gloves from Aldi last year that have held up well, and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy more garden gloves from Aldi.

Gardenline Natural Defense Owl

Gardenline Natural Defense Owl

Cost: $8.99

Thoughts: This is advertised as a natural, environmentally friendly way to scare off pests such as birds, squirrels or mice without using chemicals or pesticides. It claims to be lightweight and multi-functional, and it is quite large.

Gardenline Greenhouse Kit

Gardenline

Thoughts: This is a fun little kit, especially if you have children who want to grow things. You’ll need to transplant your seedlings to a larger space pretty quickly, though.

Suncast Border Stone Edging

Suncast Border Stone Edging

Cost: $12.99

Thoughts: This has worked well in my yard for several years. It’s name brand and can be found at other big box stores. It’s your basic, fairly sturdy garden edging.

  1. I really like the raised garden bed, put one in about 3 years ago and it is holding up really well. My husband bought me another one this year. I bought a similar one on Amazon and it was pure junk.
