s it possible to to exchange seeds between Dutch, English and Scottish gardener

I know that gardeners in the UK and Scotland grow other plants than we do in the Netherlands. Therefore, the seed of those plants are available here is limited to a number of varieties. I always watch gardeners world and see all the beautiful flowering plants. It make me a little jealous. But we in the Netherlands have plants in the garden that gardeners in the uk and scotland hardly occur. In the Netherlands there are seed swap site such as www.denationale proeftuin.nl. Here you can mutually exchange seeds of native plants that are dying out in the Netherlands and been put on the red list of endangered plants in the wild. Maybe gardeners from the UK also like to trade there to ! I want to apologize for my bad english I hope you understand what I meant to say.
