Would you mind clarifying something for me? When I collect seed, I clean, put in paper coin envelopes and then into plastic zip locks and store in the fridge. Lily seed, for example germinates well even after several years as do cyclamen and others. 

Is it ok to donate seed of uncommon plants if a year old or less and stored in proper conditions? I know Alan at Alplains carefully stores his seed and continues to ship some of it for 2-3 years. It almost always germinates, and any failures are usually mine.
