Can I save seeds from plants grown with store bought seeds?

15 years ago

My Dad always warned me that I shouldn't do this, but I am curious as to why I couldn't plant a pack of seeds from Walmart, grow them, and save the seeds to plant the following year? They bought some hollyhocks one year this way, and they reseed each year, so why couldn't I swipe some seeds from it to plant at my place?

Thanks for any advice or help you can offer! :)
