Autumn Ferns

Zone Denver, CO - Gardening zone 5 | Anonymous added on September 30, 2018 | Answered

I have an autumn fern that I purchased this spring and used as a container plant. The plant is beautiful and has thrived in its pot through the summer. Now, with winter around the corner, I am concerned about losing it and want to transfer it into the garden. Is this a good time to do so - early October? Please help - I don't want to lose this plant! Mary Reeder [email protected]

They can be transplanted at any time, but to ensure the best chance of survival, and to prevent damage, it is best to transplant in spring. Here is an article for more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/ferns/transplanting-ferns.htm
