We now know that from 29 March, we should (so long as everything goes according to plan) be able to mix with friends (up to six people from multiple households or two households of any size) outside in places such as private gardens.
With this is mind, it’s time to get our gardens and outdoor spaces ready for socialising once more. For you, that might mean a new barbecue, garden furniture, gardening tools or any other garden accessories such as pots and plants. Maybe you’re even thinking of splashing out on an inflatable hot tub to make the most of summer’s long, warm evenings.
If all this sounds like it might be starting to add up a bit, don’t worry. Forever one of our first ports of call when it comes to sourcing a bargain, Aldi has just launched their online garden shop and it’s packed full of everything you need to create a stylish and inviting outdoor space that’s primed for socialising.
There’s plenty of furniture in the Aldi online garden shop, including that hanging egg chair that was so popular last year (it’s already sold out, but there’s more stock due soon), with even more table and chair options due to drop throughout March and April.
Fancy exercising your green finger? Aldi’s small wooden greenhouses are perfect for those getting started but either don’t want it take over the whole garden or are compromised for space (they’d even fit on a balcony). Equally space-saving is the vertical planter starter kit, great for creating a ‘living wall’ effect.
If summer = barbecues to you, Aldi’s Dual Fuel BBQ is a steal at £149.99 and comprises of two cooking areas and the ability to cook with gas (for ease) and charcoal (for fuller flavour) depending on your preference. With 230 five star reviews online, we’re not surprised it’s already sold out, but don’t worry, it’s coming back into stock soon.
If you’re on more of a budget, they even have an electric outdoor grill for just £34.99, so there’s something to suit all budgets.
And after all that barbecuing, what could be better than relaxing in your own inflatable spa pool (available online from 4 April)? They really do have everything, Aldi…
