What is the proper way to store my Boston ferns for winter? Someone said cut it back and put in my garage. Any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks.

Boston ferns do fairly well as normal houseplants, if you can give them bright indirect light and good humidity. If you do not think you can do this, or if you do not have the room, you can put them into dormancy. You do this by placing them in a cool, dark place - like an attached garage, a closet or a basement. Water it only once a month, but water it thoroughly when you do. It will look dead, but in the spring, take it back out and it should regrow fine.
