Well, it's apparently closed for 2012... but I was really surprised to find
out SPCNI had their own seed exchange.  The photos are jaw-dropping!…

Yes, SPCNI put its seed exchange on line in 2011 for the first time, thanks to work by Emma Elliott, seed chairman. 
The seed list was posted on line with ordering links, from Oct 31 to Dec 31, 2012.
Future plans are to do as SIGNA does, with an initial sales period, which for PCI will be late fall to early winter, followed by an off season sales period in the balance of the winter/spring, or year round. 

I'd like to hear more from PCI growers about optimal sales periods. SPCNI has members all over the world, so there may be benefits in a series of open seed sales periods. 

My new seeds from SPCNI-SE 2012 are soaking/stratifying now, and will be planted in late February.
