Pollen Hotspots in Manchester

When it’s time to pack away your winter jacket in March, it’s time to stuff your pockets with tissues and Allergy Comfort Wipes as that’s when the pollen count starts to creep up in Manchester. And you can expect them to stay high until September. Grass, trees and weeds are the main culprits, sending out sneeze-inducing pollen when the weather gets warmer.

While Manchester is a big city, it also has its fair share of green spaces to enjoy, which means pollen can thrive in the spring and summer. It’s these tree-filled parks that often cause tree pollen levels to be so high, setting off hay fever allergies for many people.
