Aldi has gotten into the gardening business big time, especially over the last few years. The grocer rotates various green thumb supplies into its stock through the spring months, including greenhouses both large and small, stacking planters, grow lights, tumbling composters, garden seeds, and even potting soil and garden soil.
Aldi likes to surprise us with new big-ticket gardening products from time to time. Last fall, Aldi unexpectedly introduced a winter protection greenhouse. This spring, they’re rolling out a brand-new wooden potting bench.
Potting benches are not used for sitting on like other benches. Instead, they offer a workspace where you can stand while performing certain gardening chores. Potting benches are useful for corralling gardening supplies such as pots, planters, seed starting trays, and hand tools such as spades and trowels. You can also store bags of potting mix, soil, mulch, or fertilizer on or under a potting bench. The idea is that you can keep all your supplies and tools within easy reach, and you don’t need to bend, kneel, or otherwise work strenuously to get your gardening tasks done.
Potting benches can be made out of repurposed furniture such as a table or dresser, or you can purchase specially made potting benches like what Aldi is selling.

The Belavi Wooden Potting Bench (Product Code: 813039) cost $69.99 at the time of publication. That’s a lot cheaper than the majority of potting benches on Amazon, most of which cost more than $100.

- Available in a Gray or Natural Wood Finish
- Working height is approximately 32.67″
- Includes two shelves for additional storage
- Features four hooks for hanging tools
- Includes foldaway side table for additional work space
This bench comes with a three-year warranty serviced by Protel, a common Aldi warranty service provider. Protel has offered warranty or after-sales service for other Aldi products including the Crofton 14″ Stir Fry Wok Pan, the Easy Home Cordless Cyclonic Stick Vacuum, and the Belavi Stacking Ottoman.
