Does anyone know if it's ok to move a 6ft lemon fern? and if so.... How?



There is either a Lemon Button ferm or a lemon scented fern, (Oreopteris limbosperma) which do you mean?

Crikey! six foot, thats some fern. The Lemon ferns we get in the houseplants occasionally do have lovely lemon scented fronds when you brush them though they don't look as if they could get that big.

Interested to see what this turns out to be.

It's a lemon scented fern, (2 actually) I planted them 10 or 12yrs ago and they're now over 6ft. I'd like to know if I can move them or it would kill them! (These are my 1st attempts at gardening and they've survived out of pure luck!).
