I have 3 huge Kimberly Queen Ferns in backyard. Is there anyway to save them from winter? They are way to heavy to bring into the house. (Delaware) Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

You could build mini-greenhouses over them and heat with a light bulb. But that is a lot of bother.

You could circle them with mesh and then fill it with leaves. Once spring arrives, you remove and the grow back.

My co-worker dug hers up and potted them and brought them to work. They're shedding everywhere and I don't know how they'll do over winter. Also in Delaware. I think the mesh and leaves idea isn't bad. Also recommend styrofoam since it protects against the hot/cold cycles better than anything.
