The Gardener’s Answer

Hi, Glenna: Some tropical plants are easier to overwinter than others. Kimberly Queen ferns are one of the difficult ones. Unless you have a heated greenhouse, or invest in grow lights, it is easier to purchase new plants each year. I love these ferns for their stately appearance, upright growth habit, and sun tolerance. I plant them in containers every year in my garden, and for clients. After several attempts of overwinter these ferns and listening to other gardeners complain about the constant foliage drop, I decided to consider these ferns as annuals and leave it to the growers to do what they do best.
