Pruning Dog-Stomped Ferns?

Posted by jclay321 Z6 NY (My Page) on

I have some ferns. Not sure what kind. Similar to hay scented ferns, but not sure. They were doing wonderfully well until my dog stomped them chasing squirels. The fronds are half broken. If I prune will new ones emerge this late in season? Will extra fertilizer and water help?

RE: Pruning Dog-Stomped Ferns?

You can prune or not prune. If the ferns are going to put out new fronds they'll do it with or without pruning. If you're planning to leave them in the ground to overwinter, they should be alright. Cheryl
