I bought 2 ferns last year. I realize that in order to answer my question completely you need to know the types of ferns they are. I don't know. I got them at the end of the summer and they were basically "leftovers" which didn't have the name. I live in zone 6 however and the center I get my plants from usually has plants that can be grown in this zone. My question is that it is now April and there's no sign of the ferns emerging. Should I wait or plant more in their place ( ones that actually have the names on them )? Thank you.

Give them more time. Ferns are generally quite hardy and if they were appropriate to your growing zone, they should return when the soil temperatures warm.
