No Aldi near you? Not a problem, as most gardening products can be delivered to your home. But which ones are worth buying and which should you steer clear of?
Buying for your garden as you do your weekly shop has become increasingly popular in recent years, with more supermarkets offering all manner of things you might need for your garden.
Aldi has traditionally sold its gardening products as part of ‘special buy’ weeks with limited availability. But this spring it has opened an online garden shop, which will be selling items from its ‘special buy’ ranges over a longer period.
Stocks will still be limited but there will be increased availability online so you can buy gardening items during spring and summer.
Are Aldi gardening tools any good?
We don’t normally test Aldi gardening tools as they’re only available for a short time, but we have managed to get our hands on some, including the Aldi Gardenline petrol lawn mower.
This petrol lawn mower is on sale in the Aldi garden shop now. It is unusual for a self-propelled mower – one that moves forward without needing you to push it – to cost as little at £180, particularly when its engine is manufactured by well-respected brand Briggs & Stratton. Retail prices tend to start at £220 and go up to £1,250 for professional machines.
When our lawn mowers expert tried it out at home, she was impressed with the way that the mower filled the grass collection box, taking full advantage of its large 60-litre capacity. But how well did it cut the grass? Read our review of the Aldi Gardenline SP GPMX2461 to find out.
