What name is my fern

Asked July 24, 2016, 3:55 AM EDT

I have had this fern many years and never knew the name of it. This year I have split up the old big plants and started again with new small ferns which have taken well. It starts growing in late Spring and lasts through to the frosts of winter.
I live in England in the county of Cheshire.

Thanks for your question. Many ferns are similar, but this one looks like either an ostrich fern or an autumn fern. You might want to take a photo and a sample frond to a local arboretum or garden center. You may have different varieties than we have here in the U.S. Enjoy your ferns.

Thank you Annette C. for your help and advice.
