Interest In Gardening

At an early age, Julia’s developed an interest in gardening, inspired by her father, late Dr. Ed Canipelli. He was an award-winning gardener who specialized in camellias and roses.

Deep-Rooted Passion

With this deep-rooted passion for plants, flowers, and the outdoors, Julia continued to expand her knowledge by planting breath-taking gardens at each place that she made home. Even as a budding designer, friends of Julia began calling upon her talent to help them design their gardens.

Native Of Jacksonville

A native of Jacksonville, Julia returned here five years ago after residing in the Northeast. She completed requirements to become a Master Gardener and began teaching a Junior Master Gardener class at Crystal Springs Elementary School.

Garden Club Members

Julia frequently shares her expertise with Garden Club members on topics ranging from annuals and perennials to container planting. Wild Birds Unlimited has also requested Julia to talk about butterfly and hummingbird gardening. Her home garden featured during the Cummer Museum’s Spring Garden Tours of Homes.

Long-Time Friend Of Julia, Jason Little

A long-time friend of Julia, Jason Little, owner of Gecko Gardens, became Julia’s mentor and teacher. Alongside Jason, Julia was able to hone in her skills in design, making them come alive in her mind’s eye. Her designs began to reflect her creativity through the very minute details of the array of color, texture, and form that combine to develop a pleasing Feng Shui.
