Boston ferns will not usually handle cold winter weather or freeze damage well. However, you can put them into dormancy by placing them in a sheltered area (a cool, dark place) like an attached garage or a closet. Water 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.
