The Q&A Archives: Fern Care

Question: The tops of my ferns are brown with new green growth underthem....would it hurt to cut them off now? Since I just stared my collection I would like to know if this would apply to all.

Thank you.

Answer: It's always safe to cut off brown fern fronds. You'll make the plants look more attractive, plus, you'll make room for brand new growth. Best wishes with your fern collection!
