I've just been wondering if there's a place for some sort of informal exchange for fresh short-lived seed.

In my case, I've wanted to try some of the bigger Alpine Gentians (pannonicus, punctatus, purpureus, and burseri mainly) and have ordered seed from the normal autumn exchange, as well as from commercial seed merchants, but with almost no success. I know how easy it is to get excellent results with other species from fresh seed. Perhaps if any members are in the Alps over the summer they might bear this in mind.

Obviously the Ranunculaceae and Primulaceae would come under this heading too.

I don't travel a great deal but I might have something to offer in exchange?

Any takers?
