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.

It is really useful information. I have also heard that there are apps these days to watch out for different types of pollen spread. I heard of a few like WebMD, weatherbug, climacell, Zyrtec, etc. Do people use these apps, and are they effective?

Obviously the writer has never spent a spring or fall in Portland, OR. Constant sneezing, runny/watery itchy eyes, runny/stuffy nose, and general tiredness. Every year! Without a stop. When the TREES bloom, When the FLOWERS and the GARDEN bloom, when the late spring early fall GRASSES grow. It can be miserable.
