Ostrich Ferns

Q.I need to add soil around house foundation, but concerned about ferns if buried 6 inches. Should I dig up

Zone Winnipeg, zone 3 | Anonymous added on May 16, 2020 | Answered

ferns are ostrich. I need to add about 6-10 inches soil to improve grade around the house foundation. Would this kill the ferns? How do I handle this. The ferns are just now about 3-4 inches above ground.

Yes, you will want to lift the ferns and this is good time to do so.
You can also divide them at this time.
