Monrovia Nurseries

Nurseries that sell decorative plants must be a good sign of a city experiencing peace.

There are two lovely ones in Sinkor, Monrovia, off Tubman Boulevard.

Garden Park is on the left driving out of town, just a little past the Airfield Shortcut and the concrete arch over Tubman Boulevard. They also sell some artwork and hope one day to grow into a little 'lifestyle centre' with restaurant, playground etc. For now a beautiful quirky spot.

The Sinner Dream

Coop-Ben's is a block or so before Lucky Pharmacy (opposite JFK Hospital).

Besides potted plants, Ben has a whole lot of gorgeous trees and flowering tropical creatures planted. You can pick a specimen and he'll dig it up for you.

Ben Montgommery is a lovely guy & will hopefully be taking us on Sunday to visit the village from where the beautiful flowers in Liz's bouquet were sourced. He also supplies hotels, restaurants & events.
