Ferns will die back when it gets cold in winter, but they will begin to grow again in spring. The ostrich fern species can actually sprout again in fall, after the previous fronds have dried up.

Then, how do you revive a fern after winter?

Trim off dead fronds with shears that were sterilized in a solution containing one part bleach and nine parts water. Remove all the dead fronds at their base, but avoid cutting into the fleshy root crown from which new fronds emerge. Prune back the fern in late winter before new fronds emerge.

Additionally, do ferns die in the winter? Deciduous ferns do not stay green in the winter. However, if you have chosen ferns suited to your zone, they will still survive the winter just fine. When fronds start dying back in the fall, cut them back. Ferns can be kept warm with a mulch covering for the winter months.

In this manner, can ferns come back to life?

Replace the fern, water it well and give it a few weeks to bounce back. Transplant the fern if it currently grows in direct sunlight and has browned leaflets or fronds. Most ferns do fine with partial shade or intermittent, dappled sunlight.

Will macho ferns come back?

Macho ferns are hardy planted in the ground from zones 9-11. Because of their spectacular size, macho ferns usually look best by themselves. They can swallow up smaller plants in container gardens. Note: You can bring this tropical fern indoors as a large houseplant if you'd like to save it for the winter.
