Are seeds from Dollar Tree good?

Seeds for dollars are good enough to plant as I have personally sower seeds that came from Dollar Tree. The germination rate of the dollar tree won’t be 100% but you will get at least a few that will come up for you.

One thing is for sure you can grow food or flowers from seed packets that are only one dollar.
