How to Garden with Allergies

It's the heart of allergy season and it seems the sneezing gets worse every year, but a person has got to garden! Here's what to do…

If you suffer from allergies, it's actually better to garden on damp and rainy days (when pollen is washed off plants)…and in the evening (when pollen counts are lowest), if possible.
