This will depend partly on what kind of seeds they are. You can test their viability by sprinkling some on a damp paper towel, then wrap the towel in plastic wrap. Put it in a bright, warm location out of direct sun. Check often for germination. This will give you an idea of the proportion of seeds that are ok.
