The Q&A Archives: Fern Care

Question: We live with forest, creek, trillium and ferns in our back
yard. We've only lived here a year, and my husband is
concerned on how to care for the hundreds of ferns we have.
He cleans all underbrush that has accumulated through the
years, but do we trim them back for their health, or leave?
Also we have some that are under our deck and are so big
we would like to move into the forested area. Could you
please advise when and how to do this without damaging.
Thanks so much.
