We have finally torn down our outside patio covering. Will be rebuilt tomorrow! Some of you may remember the #fern that made its home in my gutter! Glad to say my Hubby made sure it stayed safe! 😊 Still not sure how I will get it out though.
I don't live in your climate but I do have a Boston fern houseplant and I've repotted it several times and I have had to cut plant and plantlets apart pretty brutally. You should be ok. It does look beautiful there!
