Dead ferns on north side

Asked May 20, 2020, 12:16 PM EDT

ALL of my ferns on the north side of the house are BROWN and very dead. What would cause this? South side ones are fine.

It could be because it is very dry there or more likely because they were hit by a chemical spray like drift from a weed killer. It is really impossible to tell. They are usually pretty tough. Check the base and see if there is new growth.
