Cutting back ferns

Posted: 27/10/2012 at 17:24

Can anyone tell me if this is a suitable time of year for cutting down ferns?

I have the opportunity to acquire some of my neighbours ornamental grasses, but I'm sure I have read somewhere that grasses can only be moved and replanted at very specific times of the year. Is this correct and would I get away with it now. The grass in question, I think, is a form of variegated moor grass.

Thanks for the advice. They do indeed seem leggy come to think of it. I'll put it outside in the shade.

A dahlia I have kept inside in it's pot over Winter has been growing away for the last few weeks. As a result it has put on about 4-5 inches of healthy growth. Trouble is the stems are so soft they are drooping, a bit listless and won't stand up. Has anyone any tips as to how this can be remedied.
