Found 26th Jan 2015
Large seeds - 49p or any 5 for £2
Fine seeds - 29p or any 5 for £1
Premium seed Selection - seed tape or seed discs - £1.49 or any 2 for £2

I've purchased many Lidl seed packets over the last few years and found them to be of excellent value - but variety availability seems to diminish as the weather improves.
With this weekend's forecast bad weather, now's the time to stock up

If you have a difficult soil (for growing veg in particular) the more expensive Premium Selection (Seed tapes or seed discs) could be a reasonably priced solution - especially at £1 (Multibuy)

I particularly recommend the seed tape carrots - as I've never been able to grow them in my chalky soil - but last year they won first prize in the local Horticultural Show

Love spreading my seed
Voted HOT!

Heat added - just don't have anywhere to grow them! Well done winning local Horticultural Show my Uncle used to get immense joy from doing the same. Would love to try growing garlic....but wouldn't know where to start!

You could plant them when you start to queue to pay then harvest them when you leave

A small price to pay for such a cheap supermarket, rather this queue than give tesco,sains etc my money! If Lidl and Also sorted small car parks and lack of tills then would be best by far. Range of products is getting better each week it seems

Aldi not Also on last post!

The whole reason they are competitive is due to the no frills low costs such as space, tills and staffing as you mentioned. If Aldi were to change this it would have to increase prices more than they already have done. Personally I prefer morrisons, the quality is better and they even price match Aldi and still offer an excellent range of products, plenty of parking and staff and fresh produce such as fish, butchers meat, fresh bread, cakes, pizza and deli. A recent survey also showed that morrisons was the cheapest supermarket based on own brand products and having tried a lot of them now I can say they are very good whereas Aldi is very hit and miss, for example the fish was full of bones and a unbelievably a similar price to M&S

Err guys this post is Lidl not Aldi!

I like Morrisons, but the Match and More thing isn't very good at all.
First of all you have to spend £15 for it to match, that means if you nipping in for some odd pieces you don't get any points or savings. This means you either have to spend more to hit the £15 amount to get the points or just pay the higher price.

Next the vouchers aren't given to you when you hit the 5000 point mark (found this out yesterday), but on your next shop (you can get vouchers for online I believe).
So say you spend £100 in a shop, hit 5000+ points you then have to go back (upto 3 days for them to be added) and buy something else to get your £5 voucher again. At this point if you want to gain points for the purchase you have to spend £15.

Once you finally get your voucher you turn it over and notice there is a big list of things you can't use it on

Vouchers cannot be used to pay for fuel, cash back, fireworks, lottery … Vouchers cannot be used to pay for fuel, cash back, fireworks, lottery online games and instant tickets, tobacco, tobacco related products, prescription medicines, infant milk or formula gift vouchers, gift cards, mobile phone cards, e top-ups, bonus stamps, postage stamps.


Fuel being a annoying considering its replaced the Morrisons Miles which used to do promos on fuel.


Home brand items are always hit and miss if you haven't found one which you didn't like in Morrisons your either not going cheap enough or haven't tried enough of the products
Price wise it really depends on what day you go to Morrisons as I always find them terrible at price fixing. £2 for 350g of cheese on promo then a week at £4 so it can be on promo again at £2. While the Match and More card semi counters you have to pay more at the till, over £15 and takes a while to get your voucher back (which can only be used at Morrisons locking you in).


I'd rather buy what I want from Aldi/Lidl (topping up at another supermarket if doing a full shop). Easier on the wallet and much quicker checkout.

Ignore Jase99 he's obsessed with Aldi, every post the same. Think he's a Morrisons and Tesco shareholder sitting on big losses.

Nice thing about dealing with Kraut supermarkets is they keep Greece going...
