athyrium metallicum help
i planted all my bought ferns a couple of weeks ago. they all seem to be thriving except the athyrium metallicum. they always seem to look slightly wilted. we have had a couple of cold nights recently too and now some of the leaves have areas of brown. Could this be down to insufficient water in the soil, or too much, or just perhaps the cold?? Should i just leave the fern leaves to rot (if they're going to), or cut them off so the plant uses it's resources elsewhere??
the location should be fine as it is part shade with no hot sun, the soil is neutral and kept moist. the strange thing is i have two athyrium niponicum 'red beauty' in the same bed, and they look very happy.
any suggestions for perking them up or perhaps saving them??
