This is a website article that I wrote for Backyard Boosts. I wanted to share it as projects in my backyard have always been a hobby that relaxes my mind, and so I love to share it with others.

If you’re allergic to pollen, you may have worse symptoms in springtime when the air is full of pollen from newly sprouting plants and trees. You may also experience symptoms in summer if you’re allergic to grasses or in autumn when certain trees release pollen.

There happen to be certain plants that sufferers of hay fever can be around without worrying about the pollen affecting them. And then, there are a bunch of indoor and outdoor plants that produce very little pollen and don’t usually bother people with allergies. Some help with oxygen production on a larger scale than others by filtering out dust and pollen particles from the air.

The plants I’m referring to are listed in no particular order below.
