New Poll: Are your spring allergies playing up yet?

Pine pollen has been falling across New Zealand, in both main islands, for the past few weeks as the windy early-spring westerlies arrived across the country.

The warm blustery nor’westers are especially well known for bringing red eyes, blocked noses, sneezes etc, in August and September.

Larger amounts of pollen kick in until after the equinox (about 3.5 weeks from now) and towards December but this is the time of year when many start writing in to us and telling us they have spring allergies.

So let us know how you’re getting on so far!
