About the Author

THOMAS LEO OGREN has a master's degree in agricultural science and is the creator of the Ogren Plant Allergy Scale (OPALS). He is a former landscape gardening instructor, nursery owner, and gardening radio show host. Ogren's interest in allergy-free gardening started because his wife, his mother, and his sisters all suffered from hay fever and asthma.


"Should be on the shelf of every serious gardener....Ogren has made a valuable contribution to our good health, and now it is up to us to put the information to work." --David A. Stadtner, MD, from the foreword
