Low Allergen Planting with Olivia Kirk
Sarah talks to garden designer and healing gardens expert Olivia Kirk.
This week I chat to Olivia Kirk about low allergen planting. Olivia works on both public and private gardens and has a number of show gardens under her belt, including a gold medal winning garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower show. She specialises in healing gardens and has worked on a number of projects such as hospice gardens, where the effect the garden can have on a person’s physical health is of paramount importance. We often think about the positive effects on mental and physical health that gardens and green spaces can provide, but we don’t often stop to think about the harm they might cause. Olivia explains how with a little bit of knowledge and a few relatively simple steps, we can make our environment a much better place for everyone, especially those suffering from allergies.
