When I told my mom, an avid gardener in the Midwest, that my husband and I were moving to Monrovia from West LA, she began rhapsodizing about the Monrovia Nursery and Seed Company. Which is now in Azusa, I think.
This gives me a chance to do a little research. I've always wondered why it was called Monrovia Nursery when it was in Azusa. According to their website, the company was "founded in 1926 in the City of Monrovia and a few years later moved a few miles east to Azusa." The headquarters and display gardens are all that's left in Azusa. Most of the property is now the Rosedale development.
This is a most interesting blog.
