Should you cut ferns down in the fall or let them freeze and fall down on their own. My husband wants to cut them down and I think they should be left alone.

OH, you're asking us to get involved in a domestic dispute? That's dangerous territory! But hopefully your husband's not big and mean and can't find me - so I will side with you. As ugly as it is, the dried fronds may provide some protection for stem and roots until spring when you can clean it all up and watch those beautiful green new leaves appear.
