Jim Broccolo has enjoyed gardening since joining a mail-order garden club around the age of 12 and has been pursuing a career in the horticulture field since high school. Jim's summers were spent working on a golf course, interning at the Chicago Botanic Garden and for many years at a garden center and landscape company on the North Shore. Jim pursued a self-designed bachelors degree at Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio, focusing on environmental sciences and landscape architecture.  Jim further developed his extensive knowledge of the highest quality plant material working on the wholesale side of the horticulture industry before starting Gemini. Gemini Designs has been an opportunity to combine his knowledge of the best plant material and creating unique designs tailored for each client. Most importantly if gives him the chance to express his creativity, and work with Mary Beth once again!

Jim's mother, Mary Beth, started her own homemade craft business, worked at a silk flower show and then an interior design business. She has been creating cut flower arrangements and outdoor seasonal flower containers for clients for many years. Mary Beth is now excited to partner with Jim.
