How to battle Hay fever in the garden this summer:

Avoid Caffeine- 

If you're a coffee lover but are unfortunate enough to suffer from Hay fever then you might not be a fan of this tip. 

But caffeine is naturally high in histamines, a chemical released by our immune system when our body thinks something is harmful which can actually worsen symptoms of hay fever. 

Mowing the grass-

Keeping your grass mowed will help prevent grasses from flowering which will help curb the biggest allergy triggers and will stop pollen from being released into the air. 

Prevent weeds-

Weeds like thistles, dandelions, and ragwort are known for their bad reputation for causing hay fever symptoms. 

And because of this, it's best to stay on top of the weeding and remove the culprits before they can flower. 

Low allergy planting-

If you love to garden but are you're worried about the constant sneezing then you're in luck as there are plenty of sneeze-free blooms to choose from like conifer, petunias, magnolias or fuschias.

Sprinkle your garden-

Some plants stop shedding pollen in wet conditions, so sprinkling your garden with a hose or sprinkler can help lay some of the pollen ahead of an afternoon of gardening or sunbathing.
