Easy as pie Brian. Trim off worn fronds,dig as large a rootball as you can move.Plant in hole amended with water retentive compost or polymers and never allow to dry out.Add vitamin B-1.
And make sure you wear long sleaves and hat-the hairs on C.cooperii are irritating more or less to how sensitive you are to those things. Some people can't keep that fern their allergys react so badly.
