Grass blooming in Central Europe

Grass pollen levels high in Central Europe – season starting in north and east

Grasses may be among the planet’s most important plants, but as those of use allergic to grass pollen know the grass pollen season is a long one. In areas like France, it can last from late April throughout to August. In Northern Europe the season is typically one month shorter in each end.

Grass pollen levels are now high across Europe from France to Poland, stretching down to Italy as well. Northern Europe and Great Britain feel the very start of the season.
