garden, outdoor ferns
Last fall my fern garden sprouted up bunches of brown arrow like twigs. I left them over winter, not sure what they are. What should I do with them this spring?

This is likely a Cinnamon Fern.
They sprout cinnamon colored fronds from the center of the plant.
They should be left on the fern.
Old and damaged fronds can be pruned from the plant.
