Hi carol- you may not remember me- you sent me some plants some time ago-they are doing well and help to fill some of the empty space in my greenhouse. Yes boston fern is very invasive-I cut mine down with the lawn mower. You can try something called bush begone-be careful because the stuff kills any thing it touches and is toxic to people. I just keep pulling the stuff up. good luck sue urban

Now, please, don't sent out the posse to string me up for such
heresy...but one of our BIG pests here is a variety of Boston Fern...  It
grows viciously where it is not wanted...is there ANYthing that will do
it in?  Round-up doesn't phase it, pulling it out only encourages more to
come up.  We live on the E. side of the Big Island of Hawaii...and the
weather and temp just thrills them to pieces...so many pieces!  Can
anyone suggest a way to rid areas of this fern.  I AM frond of ferns and
have many planted about...but this one is invasive... Thanks in
advance... Carol
