I have a Boston fern that I purchased at a retail store. It was small. I kept it on my porch during the summer and now it is huge. I live in a small apartment and don’t have room for it. I would like to keep it so I can put on my porch again next year. Can I cut it back, and if so, how should I store over the winter? Will the garage be ok?
I’ve been given a large fern that has been neglected, which means that the ends of the fronds are brown. Should I cut it all the way back to re-start all new growth?
I have 11 Boston Ferns that I hang outside during the summer; however, I do not have room in my house to keep them over the winter. I had read somewhere that people used to overwinter ferns under the house. Do you have any suggestions as I hate to allow all of these plants to die.
How cold tolerant are outdoor Boston ferns and mums?
What makes Boston ferns more green when they fade?
I recently inherited a Boston fern and I think it might have been neglected a bit. The leaves look a little burnt from possibly a slight southern frost and not watered properly. Is it ok to cut it back rather short and start over? If so, will it grow back? What to do?
I recently had to be gone for a while and the person caring for my plants didn’t water them enough. I have several brown/dead leaves on my fern. Do I pluck them off? Or allow them to fall of naturally? It is a rather large fern, and does not seem to be happy in its current placement, so I am also moving it. But I am moving it to a corner near a window, so how often should the plant be turned to allow it to get adequate light all the way around?
