Are they Japanese Painted Ferns? If so, the ones in my greenhouse are up and looking beautiful, but hte ones in my garden are only just starting to come up. I wonder, did you buy them 'in leaf' from a garden centre and plant them out this spring? If so, then might have got a bit too cold for them. If this is the case they should bounce back once conditions improve for them,
