How much water do Narcissus need and when?
I generally don't worry about watering my Narcissus as they are quite rugged and get plenty of natural rain water. But I'd like to try planting a new bulb bed on the North side of my house in order to get a delayed bloom season of cut flowers. This side of my house is close to the property line and I will have no choice but to plant the bulbs right next to the house where they will be under a two foot wide overhang and will get little rain water. So what I'm wondering is how much irrigation will they need and when? During the summer when it is hottest they will be dormant so it seems like they may need some extra water in the fall and the spring and then mulched well. Any advice?
