Having a pollen allergy can be hard to deal with; you may even need to stay indoors. There are many species of plant that will give off pollens and fertilize. You will want to consider about the many plants that will also cross-pollinate and fertilize its seeds to other locations. One example is the dandelion weed.

Other than looking at the landscape at home, take a peek at the local trees from the neighborhood homes as well and see if they could be causing you a problem. Although you cannot do anything about what is already been done outside your home, you will still want to think about what you can do for yours.
