Cutting Back Ferns?

Answer

To cut ferns back, prune away any dead or unsightly destroyed fronds from the fern anytime during the growing season from spring to fall. Do not chop low on the stem or you may unintentionally cut or damage the rhizome from where the frond grows. Wait until fall frosts and freezes turn your ferns' fronds gray or golden brown. Cut all frond stems to a height of 1 to 5 inches. Do not cut off young, shorter, attractive fronds that will grow more, focusing on cutting back the oldest, floppy or ratty-looking fronds.
