Jo Sheldon’s award winning low allergy garden

Dr Jo Sheldon, Consultant Immunologist, and Dr Tim Wreghitt, a locum Consultant Virologist at Addenbrooke’s developed ‘The Low Allergy Garden’ for The Royal College of Pathologists which was on display at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower show in May.

The judges were so impressed with the team’s creation they awarded it a silver gilt medal.

Their garden focused on low allergen plants that produce little pollen, making it suitable for people with hay fever and other respiratory allergies such as asthma.

To accompany the exhibit, Jo and Tim have written a book ‘Low Allergy Gardening: The why and how of plant allergies and plants to choose for your low allergy garden’. The paperback has over 80 pages, with 47 plant photographs and a list of plants to choose if people want to create a low allergy garden.

To get a copy of the book, email info@lag-book.co.uk. For more information about the garden and see more pictures visit http://lag-book.co.uk/sample-page/

Jo also did media interviews – you can listen to her interview on
Radio 4’s Today Programme
