Seed Starting at the Bachelor on the Cheap "Greenhouse"

Vegetable and flower seeds now in stock at Dollar Tree

You can't get seed packets any cheaper than this.  You just can't.


The recent warm weather that has brought us 60 and 70-degree weather in my neck of the woods has been quite the tease.  The warming trend is coming to an end though, when reality comes to town on Sunday.  Temperatures get back to normal for mid-February, with a forecast high of 45 degrees.

February is a great time to plant some seeds indoors and grow starter plants for transplanting in the spring and there's no better place to buy seeds right now than Dollar Tree.

At just 25 cents per seed packet, you won't find a cheaper price.  No, Dollar Tree doesn't carry anything elaborate, unique, or heirloom, but they do have all the basics.

Shoppers can pick up a nice mix of flowers and veggies, marigolds, morning glories, wildflowers, cucumbers, carrots, peppers, radishes, and a whole lot more for a whole lot less than buying a bunch of starter plants from a nursery or one of those pop-up garden tents in the spring.

Look at all that for the garden, at that low price.

With a decent selection of basics, shoppers can get plenty of seeds to create several starter plant trays with and the timing is perfect, by the time the seedlings are ready for transplant to the great outdoors, it will be spring.  If you were to wait, not start from seed, and buy starter plants from the local nurseries and/or pop-up centers come planting time, you'd be spending A LOT more money!  Starter plants from the nursery and pop-ups are convenient, but at $1, $2, $3, or more each, well, I don't know about you, but I'd rather spend my garden money otherwise.

Two Dollar Tree stores were visited on this occasion.

  • 1625 S Rock Rd #115B, Wichita, KS 67207
  • 11333 E Kellogg Dr Ste 200, Wichita, KS 67207

Both stores were busy, with each store having a line of customers waiting to check out.  The Rock Road store didn't have anyone at the register when I got in line, Francisco was focused on restocking a nearby shelf rather than paying attention to customers waiting to check out.  The Kellogg store had what looked like a new employee learning how to work the register, with a manager tutoring.  The manager was oblivious to the line, only calling someone up to assist on another register after a customer spoke up.
