My ferns froze!

What can I do? Should I cut them back? Do you think they'll survive & put up new fronds?

Me too. 8 newly purchased Red Beauty and Ghost ferns in 4 inch pots. I am concerned that they might be totally killed because they are still in nursery pots. Anyone have any opinions on this? Should I go ahead and put them in the ground and hope for the best, or just buy new ones?

RE: My ferns froze!

They'll be back if they were hardy to your area. You can trim them if you want or not. As for robiniaquest, go ahead and plant them when it is safe to do so. If you have more cold forecast, I'd put those pots in the garage or another protected area until it warms up.

RE: My ferns froze!

Thanks so much! I put them in a warm spot last night. That should be the last of the freezing temps.
