More Garden Offices Articles A garden specially designed to help hayfever sufferers has been officially opened at its new home at the University of Worcester.
The garden had previously been exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show in May where it was awarded a silver gilt medal in the urban gardens category, the Worcester News reported.
According to the newspaper, the garden was designed using low allergen plants and materials, including low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint and sustainably sourced timber in order to mitigate its impact on hayfever sufferers. Homeowners wishing to make the most of their garden environment might also want to invest in a garden office or log house.
The garden was officially opened at a ceremony that also marked the appointment of Professor Roy Kennedy as director of the university's National Pollen and Aerobiology Research Unit (NPARU).
"This new garden will provide a haven at the university and will help showcase the work of the NPARU, which is so important to millions of people suffering from allergies to airborne particulates," Professor David Green, the university's vice-chancellor, told the Worcester News.
