Spring Planting That’s Allergy Friendly


Every spring the birds begin chirping, plants begin turning bright shades of green and people with allergies begin sniffing and sneezing. Many of us with allergies avoid spring planting to avoid the allergy symptoms.

Low pollen plants tend to have large, bright-colored, pretty flowers that attract bees, butterflies and other insects to pollinate them.
