Question by Kitties07

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.

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!
