Importing plants or seeds can be complicated due to regulations of your home country. If you know your local rules, it can be done. Seeds are often easier to import than living plants, many countries require no paperwork for seeds, other only require a phytosanitary certificate, which can be expensive, but for seeds tends to be less expensive. Paperwork can easily cost more than the plants or seeds in the shipment.

That said I have listed some seed companies that will sell internationally. The only one I have dealt with is Sheffields, and my experience has been excellent.

hopes this helps

Thanks Leo. Understand the complication process that you mention above. Hence, I wanted to get the plants/seeds locally in Malaysia. Not sure if anyone here know where to get it.

If there are any JB pines in your area the cones can be collected in the fall for seed. I'm sure you can find a "how to" on the www.

Abigailc,

just a suggestion - you may wish to obtain some Pinus caribbea / Honduras and train them [ about 10 to 20 seedlings ] and then use the experience on the J.B.pine seedlings.
Easier on your nerves.

Seed, ask a friend to purchase from Amazon [ US or UK ] and bring them in for you.
Laters.

*** Yes, I have J.B.pine from seed about 25 + years from seed --------- still learning how to as they don't quite respond to the training in the zone 7 areas.
No long candles, just lots of needles - chuckle
