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?

Yes, the plant can be cut back and will regrow just fine. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/boston-fern/trimming-boston-ferns.htm
