Spring has finally sprung – and with it, garden gatherings and alfresco dining. And with it comes the tricky task of sprucing up your outdoor space.
Luckily, helping you get set for the new season on a budget is supermarket Aldi, with its sell-out garden range returning to the Specialbuys aisle for 2022.
We’ve already seen the comeback of the coveted hanging egg chair and now the shop has relaunched its entire outdoor range that boasts everything you need to kit your garden out for balmier days – from a cozy snug seat, gazebo, outdoor pizza oven and kamodo barbecue that rivals the Big Green Egg models (£1,295, Biggreenegg.co.uk), to a patio heater, corner sofa, mini greenhouse and supersize rattan furniture set.
Purveyor of everything from log burners to Le Creuset inspired casserole dishes, Aldi’s Specialbuys always sell out fast – so now’s your chance to snap up its latest launch while it’s all still in stock.
If you’re wanting to get your hands on the supermarket’s outdoor must-haves, here’s everything you need to know about the newest additions to Aldi’s new garden range, from a rocking chair to a log burner and rattan bistro set.

The six-seater cushioned corner sofa comes complete with two cushioned ottomans and a glass-topped raised coffee table. Ideal for barbecues and get-togethers, the contemporary design boasts a rattan finish.
If you’re looking to stretch out the days and evenings spent outside come rain or shine, Aldi’s budget gazebo has you covered (quite literally). Made from powder coated steel with a polyester decorative cover, it’s durable and weather-proof – ideal for the drizzly British summertime. Measuring 2.9mx 2.9mx 2.7m in size, there’s plenty of room to shelter yourself, guests or family.
Gardenline oxidised fire globe: £94.99, Aldi.co.uk

Gardeline rope effect snug seat: £249.99, Aldi.co.uk
New to Aldi’s garden range is this stylish rope effect snug seat, perfect for long balmy days spent outdoors. Complete with five matching seat, back and small cushions, it seats up to two people and boasts a UV and weather resistant rope effect weaved frame. The snug seat is an ideal focal point for your patio or would make the perfect cozy corner in your garden.

Gardenline mini gas pizza oven: £179.99, Aldi.co.uk
Bring a taste of Italy to your back garden with the help of Aldi’s mini gas pizza oven. Homemade pizza is a tricky endeavor but an outdoor oven can make the process a lot easier – but with most costing upwards of £1,000, it’s not the cheapest purchase. Aldi’s oven is stylish and durable, with wheels and handles for effortless transportation, while its gas-powered design cooks stonebakes easily and quickly.
Gardenline kamado ceramic egg BBQ: £399.99, Aldi.co.uk
Egg-shaped barbecues – based on the 3,000-year-old Japanese kamodo pot – are essential for serious grill masters. But while most popular kamado barbecues – including the A-lister favorite Big Green Egg (£1,295, Biggreenegg.co.uk) – cost upwards of £1,000, it’s no surprise that Aldi’s budget version has been such a hit with shoppers in the past . And now you can get your hands on one for just £400.
Designed for cooking, baking, roasting, grilling and searing anything from meats to vegetables and cheeses, you can take your barbecuing to the next level. Its thick ceramic walls retain heat for quick and easy outdoor meals while also helping with fuel efficiency as less charcoal and oxygen is needed to fuel the fire.
A must-have for the unpredictable British spring and summertime, warm up your evenings spent outside with Aldi’s patio heater. The supermarket claims it’s easy to assemble while its sleek, black design doesn’t scrimp on any style. And at less than £50, it’s almost half the price of its market rivals and will be back in stock soon.
Gardenline gray wooden deck chairs: £59.98, Aldi.co.uk
A deckchair is ideal for getting in the summer spirit and this pair from Aldi will seriously upgrade your garden setup. As well as costing far less than even an individual deckchair does elsewhere, you’ll get three adjustable positions, easy folding and FSC-certified wood. The gray canvas complements the acacia wood frame, making them the perfect minimalist additions to your outdoor space.
Whether you’re a seasoned veg grower or want to try your hand at seeding for spring, Aldi’s potting bench is the perfect station to get started. Crafted from FSC certified wood with galvanized steel construction, the durable and weatherproof design boasts two drawers, a lower shelf for extra storage and six side hooks for tools. With most potting benches on the market costing upwards of £60, Aldi’s option is nearly half the price and if you don’t fancy the dark wood hue, it also comes in neutral (£34.99, Aldi.co.uk).
Gardenline 4 tier mini greenhouse: £26.99, Aldi.co.uk
Available now, Aldi’s four-tier greenhouse is a great way to make the most of your garden. Designed for seed propagation and growing plants and vegetables, it’s ideal for first-time gardeners or kids wanting a new hobby. The design is easy to assemble, with a roll-up zip door, waterproof cover, eyelets to fix it to the ground and a UV resistance of up to 500 hours.
Gardenline cream rattan corner sofa and cover: £299.98, Aldi.co.uk
An instant hit last year when rattan was all the rage, Aldi has brought back its garden corner sofa for 2022 – and we predict a sell-out. With most outdoor furniture sets costing upwards of £500, Aldi’s offering is a steal and even comes with a matching seat, plush cushions and a cover worth £29.99. If you fancy the sofa set without the cover, it’s will also be available in stores for £269.99. Aldi has confirmed the sofa will be back in stock soon.
Gardenline natural wooden mini greenhouse: £69.99, Aldi.co.uk
Also returning for 2022 is Aldi’s wooden greenhouse that’s perfect for budding gardeners or those wanting to stretch their green fingers. Its small size lends it to smaller outdoor spaces, balconies or patios, while its three adjustable storage shelves and two lifting lids are handy features. It’s also available in a gray colourway (£69.99, Aldi.co.uk).
Gardenline bamboo style rattan bistro set: £169.99, Aldi.co.uk
A popular Specialbuy last year, Aldi’s rattan bistro set is perfect if you’re working with limited space.
