Spring is almost here and for many it will mean getting out in the yard and getting the flower beds ready for planting. In many parts of the country they are forecasting an early pollen season.
Depending on where you live pollen season usually runs from March to September. Here in South Florida our plants are already starting to bloom.
With that being said don’t let a little pollen keep you from doing something you love. You can still get out and create that beautiful garden. You just need to take a few precautions.
- Figure out what plants bother you the most and don’t plant them.
- Do the gardening when winds are light and pollen counts are low.
- Wear gloves and a pollen mask.
- Keep your hands away from your eyes and nose. Use a bandana to wipe the sweat away.
- Take your antihistamines or use your nasal sprays before you start working in the garden.
- Make sure to wash your hands and face when you are done and change your clothes as soon as you are done. This will keep you from spreading the pollen all over the house.
You have been cooped up long enough. Go outside and enjoy the nice weather and bring new life to that backyard.
Wishing you the best of health
