Can I Trim Tips of My Boston Fern?

joanieo added on October 2, 2012 | Answered

I just brought my Boston fern in from my patio, as it is becoming colder here in Alberta, and frost will occur soon. Some tips of leaves are brown. I know this is from uneven watering, as I was away for three weeks. Can I trim tips of some fronds?
