Ferns dead or???
OK, I have had several big beautiful ferns that were on my patio out back and they were just so huge and heavy there was not a chance of me lifting them to get them into the garage for the winter...I did cover them every time I knew of freezing temps...they did fine until I'd say the freeze before last...and then poof, gone...they just croaked....I took them up from the pots and tossed them...then I saw another fern post and it made me think MAYBE....just MAYBE they were not completely dead...maybe their roots were still ok and they would come back..
what's your experience with this?
Boston ferns by the way....they actually survived for 2 years after buying them...(last year they were not so big and could be moved).
