Springtime arrives early at ALDI
ALDI is giving shoppers another reason to shop its stores this spring: innovative garden supplies.
The discounter is making room on its shelves for a new product called Mini Garden Kits, which feature innovative gardening technology and software integration, in a size and price point appealing to aspiring first-time gardeners. With three different kinds of Mini Garden Kits available, the kits are designed to empower anyone to easily grow a variety of delicious herbs, salads or pesto gardens in the comfort of his or her own home.
“From the beginning, our mission has been to empower anyone to become a gardener, with the ability to make specially curated, fragrant recipes from homegrown gardens,” said Cam MacKugler, founder and CEO of Seedsheet. “With this expanded availability, fresh and healthy, homegrown food has never been more accessible.”
Each kit includes a variety of pre-selected organic, non-GMO seeds in dissolvable pods for seamless planting and is specially designed with strategic seed placements to facilitate maximum growth. Using permeable fabric, each sheet is designed to keep weeds from affecting plant growth and health. Each kit is equipped with specially-selected soil and container to ensure proper root development and a custom-designed watering spout ensures the right amount of moisture is distributed to each garden’s seedlings.
Seedsheet Mini Garden Kits are currently available for purchase at ALDI stores nationwide for $8.99 ($9.99 for California residents) and on seedsheets.com and Amazon.com.
Seedsheet was founded in 2014 and began on Kickstarter before quickly gaining retail traction and launching in Home Depot in 2016. The company appeared on “Shark Tank” in 2017 and has gone on to numerous QVC sellouts and features on “Good Morning America” and “The View.”
