Try not to inhale them Dawn , I seem to remember from somewhere that the fern spores are cancerous ! I might be quite wrong someone will say something i'm sure one way or the other .........

Don't be frightened of them Dawn I have some in my garden ,, just try not to brush passed them or be bending down near them when they are loaded with spores so that you inhale them .... I watched a programme where they walked across an area of Ferns and filmed it in slow motion so that you could see what was happening , I can't bring myself to walk through loads of them now without thinking of that ....
