The Allergy-Fighting Garden: Stop Asthma and Allergies with Smart Landscaping Paperback – February 17, 2015
The Groundbreaking Guide to Health-Conscious Gardening
are one of the millions of people with allergies or asthma, this totally
unique book shows you how to avoid plants that trigger allergies and to
create a garden that will actually protect you by trapping pollen and
cleaning the air around you. This revolutionary approach combines the
best of horticulturist Thomas Ogren’s previous books—Allergy-Free Gardening and Safe Sex in the Garden—into a full-color guide, including hundreds of new and updated plant listings and photographs.
Ogren’s innovative system for combating allergens is based on the
crucial matter of plant sex. By replacing troublesome male plants in
your yard with pollen-blocking female “pollen screens,” allergy
sufferers can reduce or eliminate their symptoms. More than 3,000 plant
listings are included, accompanied by an easy-to-use allergy ranking
scale of 1 to 10. With many new pollen-free plants to choose from, as
well as clearly marked “worst offenders” to avoid, this is the ultimate
resource for home gardeners and professionals alike who want to build
healthy, safe, and beautiful gardens that everyone can enjoy.
As a gardener and someone who has a family with Asthma and Allergies, I was happy to get this Allergy Fighting Garden book by Thomas Leo Ogren. This is a beautiful book with a lot of pics and detailed descriptions which I love! I found this book to be packed with a lot of knowledge and wonderful information. I had no idea of this concept of pollen blockers etc. It is a must read for those with allergies or have loved ones with allergies. Gardening is such a joy and this book not only shows which plants you can grow in your garden and landscaping but can actually help your allergies. I think this would be a great gift for anyone who gardens.
