13 Most Dangerous Garden Plants for Allergy Sufferers


What plants can not be kept in the garden for allergy sufferers? Told in video


1. Birch

Birch is considered the most allergenic tree that grows in Russia. Its pollen causes severe symptoms in more than half of the chroniclers. Therefore, pay special attention to your well-being in the garden from April to May, while these trees are in bloom. If the allergy manifests itself brighter, and the birch grows close to home, it is better to get rid of it. Of course, cutting down a healthy adult tree is an extreme measure, but if it grows, for example, right at the bedroom windows, you will have to do it. If the birch is young enough and miniature, you can try to transplant it to another part of the garden.


2. Alder

Another tree with allergenic pollen, which is not recommended for allergy sufferers to plant in the garden. Fortunately, alder blooms in late March and early April — at this time, few people live in the country on a permanent basis. Therefore, if the tree is already growing, and you do not come to the dacha in early spring, you will not have to get rid of it. If the question is what to plant in an empty garden, choose hypoallergenic crops: apple trees, cherries, pears.

1. Hazel

Hazel blooms from April to mid-May and also often causes allergies. When choosing a replacement for him, pay attention to all dioecious varieties (those that are divided into male and female): sea buckthorn, volzhanka, asparagus, etc. Pollen in this group of plants is emitted only by males, so you can safely plant females and not be afraid of exacerbating allergies.


2. Jasmine

Many people think that they simply do not like the smell of jasmine, because it is too rich and because of this causes dizziness, as well as discomfort in the stomach. But in fact, these are the first symptoms of an allergy, because jasmine is a fairly strong allergen that blooms in June and July, just when people spend a lot of time in the garden. Therefore, it is better to replace it with something more hypoallergenic: for example, hydrangea.


3. Juniper

Does the smell of juniper in the garden cause discomfort in the eyes or nose? So it’s one of your allergens. If it grows on the edge of the plot, away from the house and garden seating areas, you can not get rid of it, but simply entrust the pruning of the shrub to someone who does not have allergies. Azalea or boxwood is suitable for replacement.

1. Artemisia ragweed

Ambrosia is the most dangerous weed that allergy sufferers can encounter. The best way to get rid of it is to uproot it from the ground. It is possible to mow ragweed only at the moment when the buds are ripening on it, but the buds have not yet bloomed. If you do this earlier, she will release 2-3 times more new shoots. At the same time, plant grasses on the plot that displace ragweed and are safe for humans: fescue, alfalfa, wheatgrass.


2. Quinoa

Another allergenic plant, but less dangerous and tenacious. If you notice a reaction to the quinoa in yourself, just mow it down and carefully dig up the place where it grew. The seeds of this weed cannot germinate if they are deep in the ground.


3. Sorrel curly and sheep

Some varieties of sorrel can also cause allergies. Mow the plant and sprinkle ashes on the place where it grew. After a few days, come back and remove the weakened roots so that they do not give new shoots.


4. Thistle

Thistle during flowering often causes allergies, and at the same time it grows quite aggressively in the garden. Cut off the top of the plant and sprinkle the remaining base sticking out of the ground with a little salt. This will be enough for the root system of the weed to die too.


5. Wormwood

Flowering wormwood is harmful to allergy sufferers, so do not forget to mow it regularly. The cut plant can be burned or made into a decoction to repel parasites on other plants. Also, small bunches of wormwood can be placed in the barn or basement where the crop is stored to keep mice away from it.

Decorative flowers

1. Goldenrod

Blooming with beautiful yellow bunches of small flowers, goldenrod is quite harmful for allergy sufferers. If you want bright accents from the garden, it is better to plant crocuses or phloxes instead of this flower.


2. Lily

The easiest way to understand if a flower can cause an allergy is to pay attention to its aroma. All varieties with a strong smell are likely to provoke unpleasant symptoms in people prone to allergic reactions. If you are one of them, plant irises or forget-me-nots instead of lilies.


3. Sunflower

Sunflower pollen and essential oils can cause dry eyes and dizziness in allergy-prone people. If you really want to decorate the garden with this particular plant, choose decorative varieties that do not produce pollen and seeds.
