Pollen In the UK - A Great Infographic from the Met Office
Below is a really good infographic produced by the Met Office about Pollen in the UK. It displays some useful facts about pollen:

- The timings of the main pollen seasons.
- The grass pollen season, the one that causes most problems for hayfever sufferers starts soon, in mid to late May.
- The hot spot for pollen in the UK is the South of England.
Also, interestingly, for those who enjoy a glass of wine or a beer on a summer's evening - alcohol worsens hay fever symptoms!
For those of you who suffer from hay fever, MetOffice.gov.uk is an excellent source of information - from 5-day pollen forcasts to tips on getting through the hay fever season by minimising the symptoms of pollen allergies.
