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.

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.

Inorganic mulches do not decompose, but this can have the advantage of not having to replace or top-up the mulch, which can reduce the cost of using mulch over the long-term. Read More
