Q.Can I Trim Tips of My Boston Fern?

Zone 2 - 3 | 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?

You can cut the plant back, or in the very least, cut back the brown foliage. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/boston-fern/trimming-boston-ferns.htm
