Help!!! Dying Ferns!

Nis941(9, FL)February 10, 2011

I'm trying to transplant some ferns to my shade garden and I'm failing miserably. Not only that but I feel terribly guilty anytime one of the suckers turn brown. I'm in Southwest florida. Does anyone have any success in transplanting ferns? I'm not sure of the types, I'm just looking for general advice at this point. I'm thinking my area may be too windy?

I'd wait till mid to late march. Use hardy ferns outside. Pat (former PCB resident)
