Jo Hilliam, Hargreaves Plants

Jo manages the operations within the micro propagation laboratory here at Hargreaves plants Ltd. She oversees all technical processes from initiations through to weaned plants moving onto the nursery.

Away from work, Jo enjoys her holidays, DIY, rummaging round antique shops & collecting old teddy bears. She also enjoys gardening surprisingly!...
