An allergen free garden was launched at this years’ Chelsea Flower Show, which could be great news for hay fever sufferers.

The garden was designed for students at the University of Worcester. It features flowers which only release a small amount of pollen into the air including peonies and irises.

The designer, Olivia Kirk, said she had tried to create a beautiful, low allergen garden where people who suffered from pollen related allergies, like hayfever, could enjoy being outdoors.

She said: “The trick with low-allergen gardens is to avoid plants which are wind-pollinated as they tend to have more and lighter pollen, which stay in the air more easily.”

The National Pollen and Aerobiology Unit (NPARU) is part of the University.  A recent study by Professor Jean Emberlin at the NPARU found that HayMax nose balm traps 98% more pollen than an uncoated nostril.

The garden will be moved to the NPARU at the Univeristy when the show ends.
