Choosing a low allergy garden

I love to look at a colourful flowering garden but my husband gets terrible seasonal pollen allergies and hay fever with many traditional flowering plants. That's why I have been looking at low allergy options so that we can both have the type of garden that we love in our home. This blog has some tips on the kinds of plants that I have found that grow well in the Australian climate while emitting low levels of pollen. I hope it is useful to other Aussies who are trying to plan a beautiful garden while dealing with seasonal allergies and hay fever.
