Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as today, Sunday.
This week’s theme is lawn and garden supplies, Earth Day-themed items, rain gear, and some healthy food highlights.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Gardenline 4-Tier or Drop-Over Greenhouse, $19.99. We’ve owned Aldi’s 4-tier greenhouse for two years, and it’s a useful tool for helping to start seedlings each spring. Read our review here. Aldi is also selling a drop-over greenhouse this year that we’ve never seen them sell before, so we’re curious about that. This week’s greenhouse options are in addition to a larger, more expensive walk-in greenhouse Aldi sold a couple of weeks ago.
ALDI Finds (Special Buy) Highlights:
Other lawn and garden supplies include:
- Gardenline Tumbling Composter, $39.99. Features UV-protected, all-season construction. We bought this composter last year. It takes a long time to get much finished compost from this bin, possibly because its volume capacity is on the small side. Read our full review here.

- Exquisite Collection Trio Blanc, see price in store. 750 mL, from New Zealand. Aldi says: “Exquisite Collection Trio Blanc is a thrilling Cuvee made from selected grapes of Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. Pinot Gris is known for its refreshing citrus flavor and zesty acidity. The Sauvignon Blanc lends this wine its typical gooseberry and tropical fruit aromas, whereas the Riesling rounds it all off with lush flavors of crisp apple and stonefruit. Pairs well with salads, seafood, vegetable dishes or light meats.”
