Discount grocery chain Lidl is expanding its outdoor Garden Center concept just in time for spring gardening season.

The Garden Center concept was piloted in 2022 in Long Island, New York in partnership with Gabrielsen Farms, a local business who grows annuals, perennials, edible plants and shrubs. In 2023, the concept was expanded to more Lidl stores across the state, and this year, the Garden Center will be available in 76 stores across the Lidl US network.

Lidl Garden Centers feature a variety of flowers, plants, soil, hanging baskets, planters and other gardening accessories.

“We are excited to bring the Lidl Garden Center concept to even more customers this year,” said Tammy Roberts, director of purchasing for floral at Lidl US. “At Lidl, we are relentlessly focused on quality and freshness at low prices and our Garden Centers are no exception. We are delighted to work with our incredible partners – Gabrielsen Farms, American Color Inc. and van Hoekelen Greenhouses to provide our customers with the best plants and flowers for their gardens this spring.”

The garden centers will roll out in three phases in select stores:  

March 27-May 14: Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina   

April 10-May 14: Virginia and Maryland  

April 24-May 28: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York 

“van Hoekelen Greenhouses is extremely excited to be a part of the Garden Center launch,” said Alex van Hoekelen, operations manager for van Hoekelen Greenhouses. “We believe our quality, experience, and service along with our partnership with Lidl will result in a very successful outdoor spring season.”

Germany-based Lidl operates more than 12,000 stores and is active in 32 countries, employing more than 360,000 employees globally. The grocer operates more than 170 states in the U.S. across nine East Coast states and Washington D.C.
