Allergy-Free Gardening: The Revolutionary Guide to Healthy Landscaping

 

 

Allergy-Free Gardening: The Revolutionary Guide to Healthy Landscaping
by Thomas Leo Ogren

This book presents a new idea and does so very well indeed. Ogren, a former landscape gardening instructor, proposes that in our private and public landscaping we need to reduce the use of plants that cause allergies. Until the publication of this book, the information needed to make allergy-free choices had not been compiled in one easily accessible source; nor had a scale been devised for rating plants that cause allergies. Here, Ogren accomplishes both these aims. His introductory material presents many plants and allergies new to this reviewer, and he shows how to apply his ideas. The main part of the book consists of plants listed in alphabetical order by their scientific names, with numerous cross references to their common names. Brief annotations provide descriptions and notes regarding allergies. The most important feature, however, is the rating of plants on a scale from one to ten (with ten causing the worst allergic reactions). As David Stadtner, a practicing allergist, writes in his foreword, "the book should be in the library of every nursery and municipal park department." It should be in public and academic libraries as well.

 

5 out of 5 stars Changed the way I look at plants., May 5, 2003

  Reviewer: Sarah from Culver City, CA United States

Allergy-Free Gardening really did change the way I look at plants. I have a background in both horticulture and botany and yet there was so much new material that I learned from this book that I was frankly, amazed. I knew a bit about plant sex, but in retrospect, very little.
In Thomas Ogren's eyes all plants are not created equally--or at least they certainly are not equally of value to us. In the past I planted and never gave much thought to whether or not something would be causing me rashes, allergies or other plant-triggered illnesses. I look at trees, shrubs, vines, flowers, lawns different now though. I use this book to find the best plants, the ones that will be attractive and useful in my garden and that will be healthy choices for me and my family.
I like the way Allergy-Free Gardening is set up. Everything is easy to find, easy to understand, easy to use. This author has a real talent for taking the very complicated and putting it all into easily understood layperson terms. His writing is fluent, personal, interesting. You have the feeling he cares deeply about what he does. I haven't read his newest book yet, Safe Sex in the Garden, but I have two friends who have and they thought it was excellent. I've ordered a copy of it also. But, if you garden or you are concerned about your health, I expect you will enjoy this book. I also find that I use it over and over as a general gardening reference book, since it is full of good, solid, down to earth horticultural advice. This is one of the best gardening books I own, and certainly the best thing written on allergies, asthma, and avoiding pollen. --This text refers to the Paperback edition

5 out of 5 stars This is the best book on alllergies I've ever seen!, April 2, 2001

  Reviewer: Christy Mountin from Elmwood, Wisconsin

Packed with information that is scientific yet very easy to understand, I found Allergy-Free Gardening to be completely useful. It is a book that I refer to often and already I have been making very good use of it in my own gardens. This book is arranged in such a way that it easy and quick to find any and garden plants discussed and allergy ranked. I like the way every plant is ranked on a one to ten scale since this makes it perfectly clear as to the allergy potential of each. I also have found this to be an excellent general gardening book, full of useful tips on much more than just allergies. The author's explanation about plant sex and male and female plants makes a great deal of sense. It is something that I hope will be much better understood in the near future. I have been recommending Allergy-Free Gardening to everyone I know who gardens and certainly to everyone I know who has allergies. It is an impressive, well-researched, fun to read book and really, a must for anyone with a decent gardening library. Last week there was a large article about this book in the San Jose Mercury News and the garden writer there obviously agrees with me. If you have allergies, this is the one to own.
