Fern type and care?

leedeeSeptember 28, 2012

Hi all-- I recently inherited a lot of ferns with a home I bought. I needed to dig some up and potted them. They looked gorgeous all summer, but now I need to know what to do with them for the winter. I am a fern novice. Do I need to get them back in the ground? Can they stay in pots? Should I bring them in or put them in the garage?

I've included a photo if someone can tell me more about this type of fern. I still have many in the ground as well, so I want to be sure I know how to care for them properly. The ones in the ground didn't do so well this summer.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It seems to be Dryopteris filix-mas.
