Spring is almost here and you’ve already started to get ready for warmer weather and longer days. But before you get overzealous on the gardening and landscaping tasks, it’s important to take your pollen allergies into consideration.
Dr. Clifford Bassett, founder and medical director at Allergy and Asthma Care of New York, advises organising your garden so that the plants that produce the most pollen are farthest from any entrance to the home.
However, if you don’t want to take any risk, there are 23 plants that Dr. Bassett recommends as the best choices for allergy sufferers because they are the least allergy provoking. From vibrant azaleas to fragrant (yes, fragrant!) roses, there is a wide range of options.
And for more in depth analysis on plants and allergies, Dr. Bassett points to OPALS, the Ogren Plant-Allergy Scale, which measures the allergy potential of all gardening and lanscaping plants.
The scale has ranked more than 5,000 plants – and counting! – so that allergy sufferers like yourself can still enjoy the benefits of a garden despite your symptoms.
