Weekly Tip 06/16/2020

Here's your weekly tip!

The mechanism of traveling to a new location helps spread the plant's genetics into new environments and helps to keep the plant from going extinct. While some plants are strictly male or female (dioecious), others can self pollinate (have both parts on the same plant, known as monoecious). And now that we got some basic biology out of the way (phew!), let's talk about how to use that to our advantage to create a low allergy garden.

The first goal is to stay away from is wind pollinating plants. These plants produce lots of pollen in hope that a gust of wind will carry its genetics to female plants far away. Think of a male juniper plant, as just a small tap on its branches can cause a plume of yellow pollen to cover the surrounding area.
