In addition to pantry staples, Aldi grocery stores sell a terrific variety of gifts for the special someone on your list. And nothing complements a birthday or anniversary present like flowers.
Fresh, live flowers enhance any gift, but can you find these at Aldi? Here’s what I learned!
Does Aldi Sell Flowers In 2021?
Aldi does sell fresh flowers in bouquets for only $3.99 as of 2021. In addition to their everyday bouquets, Aldi sells seasonal flowers throughout the year which vary in price from $3.99 to $14.99 and up. Customers can find flowers at Aldi near the registers.
To learn more about what kind of flowers you might find in your local Aldi, where to find them, and how much they’ll cost you, read on!
What Types Of Flowers Does Aldi Sell?
Aldi’s famous $3.99 everyday bouquets include fairtrade roses, tulips, carnations, daffodils, and daisies. These may be single-type bouquets or a beautiful mix of a few different flowers, including baby’s-breath.
Additionally, Aldi is well known for its seasonal or holiday-themed fresh flowers. These are released as ALDI Finds, or limited-run, limited-availability products that are considered “gone when they run out.”
For example, the stores roll out premium bouquets of a dozen roses around Valentine’s Day and potted lilies for Easter.
For Mother’s Day you can also find premium mixed bouquets, premium tulip bouquets, hyacinths, calla lilies, and even orchids.
Springtime also brings out the hanging baskets for porches and perennials for planting (like the much-coveted hydrangeas). These might not be traditional bouquets, but they can still make great gifts.
Once the winter Holiday season kicks off in November, Aldi sells flowers like amaryllises, which come in festive pots.
Aldi rotates their limited-edition/limited-quantity flowers every week, so even when there aren’t special holidays, stores receive new types of flowers. Think paper whites in a glass vase in October or succulents in tins in July.
The best way to find out what type of seasonal flowers are at Aldi is to check their online flier for both current and future (one week in advance) ALDI Finds. You can also check the flier that comes in the mail a day or two ahead of their new stock.
Finally, upcoming ALDI Finds mini-fliers can be found at the exits of Aldi stores, too.
How Much Are Flowers At Aldi?
Everyday bouquets are $3.99, no matter what kind of flowers are contained within. This includes Aldi’s small rose bouquets, which feature a half dozen roses in the bunch. Other common flowers include carnations, daisies, and mixed bunches.
Flowers sold as ALDI Finds vary widely in price. They start at $3.99 like the everyday bouquets, while special premium bouquets, which are larger and contain more flowers, run you anywhere from $8-20.
Potted flowers start as inexpensively as $2.50 for tiny plants and can run up to $13. It is very rare that Aldi charges more than $20 for even potted flowers.
One additional note about Aldi flower prices: sometimes when their ALDI Finds flowers don’t sell out they get discounted. If you’re lucky (and you keep your eyes peeled), you might scoop up a bouquet for half-price!
Where Are The Flowers In Aldi Located?
Aldi’s flowers don’t have a dedicated floral section, like you might find at other chain grocery stores. Instead, expect to find what bouquets are available displayed up near the registers.
Potted flowers or hanging baskets are more likely to be on free-standing shelving set up in various locations throughout the store.
Are Aldi Flowers Good Quality?
Aldi bouquets in particular come with flower food and instructions for care, which no doubt improve the longevity of the blooms.
Does Aldi Deliver Flowers?
No, the Aldi chain stores themselves do not offer flower delivery, like a florist shop.
However, there is a work-around if you’re in a bind and can’t make it to the store!
Aldi has partnered with grocery delivery service Instacart. Instacart delivers orders over $35, so if you want to have flowers delivered you can either purchase $35-worth or add them to your grocery haul.
Instacart also allows you to pick up your groceries curbside, so if you just don’t want to go into the store, you can select the pick-up option for orders over $10.
One thing to note, however: Instacart frequently upcharges on the prices you would see on the store shelves. So that $3.99 bouquet near the registers could cost you a bit more (50 cents more seems to be the norm).
You also will not be able to take advantage of any in-store price-slashing.
Can You Order Flowers From Aldi?
Unfortunately, you cannot call up your local Aldi store and order flowers.
The closest you can come, again, is to use Aldi’s partnership with Instacart and buy based on what they have available listed online.
What Day Does Aldi Get Fresh Flowers?
New products, such as ALDI Finds, hit the store shelves on Wednesdays. That would be the best day to check for fresh flowers and limited-run plants.
In-demand products can fly off the shelves in Aldi stores. If you have checked ahead of time and know there is a type of flower you want up for sale, get there early.
Does Aldi Sell Flower Seeds?
If you are looking to nurture flowers from seed to plant, you can buy flower seeds at Aldi. However, these are only available as ALDI Finds during certain times of the year: spring and summer.
In addition to seeds, Aldi also sells ready-to-plant bulbs during this time.
Yes, Aldi sells flowers for a variety of occasions and budgets. Whether you’re looking for a pretty bouquet or an elegant holiday decoration, Aldi continues its tradition of selling high-quality products for shockingly low prices.
