Micropropagation Lab Manager, Hargreaves Plants
Jo manages the operations within the micropropagation laboratory here at Hargreaves plants Ltd. She oversees all technical processes from initiations through to weaned plants moving into the nursery.
She joined the company in September 2004 as a laboratory technician when the company were setting up the lab. She works closely with breeders and growers in addition to our own team, maximising potential for new varieties moving into the market.
Jo studied Horticulture levels 1 and 2 at the Isle College including Biology and Rural Biology into her studies. She then went on to work in the pharmaceutical and research industry gaining technical skills.
Away from work, Jo enjoys her holidays, DIY, rummaging round antique shops and collecting old teddy bears. She also enjoys gardening surprisingly!
