Marie, could you tell a difference or a reaction from the sunflowers? It could be that you are okay with them. My DD is allergic to some things, but does okay with some plants or other allergens that are related. Could you talk to your doc about whether sunflowers would be a problem for you in particular?

K8SMOM2002 Last fall undecided to dry the flowers so I cut them before the birds and squirrel could get at them. Oh my word I didn't realize how much pollen was in them. So I won't be drying them this year but I will plant the seeds again next year will just have to buy them.
