Boston Fern Plants

Boston Fern

Anonymous added on March 4, 2014 | Answered

I keep my ferns in my garage because they are huge; they're 5 years old. This winter it got really cold and they did not freeze but most of the leaves turned brown, but are flexible as in still alive. Do I just do a clean-up on them (trim it down to new growth) and should they be fine? Should I do this as it gets a bit warmer outside?

Yes, once it gets warmer, you can trim off the brown foliage and new growth should take its place. Here is more information that should help, now and in the future:,
