Q.Care of Fern Plants

Anonymous added on October 16, 2011 | Answered

We have three of the most beautiful ferns that we kept on our front porch during the warm times of the year. Now that the cold weather is upon us, I would like to know how do we store them for the winter months?

You can try putting the plants into dormancy. Place the plants in a cool area, such as a garage, basement or, if there is a crawlspace, under the house. The plants will appear to die back but still water them about once a month. When the weather warms up, take tham out, place them somewhere warm and resume regular watering. They should regrow quickly.
