Have 3200 bulbs in ground. Most years we've gotten a bit of rain throughout the spring and I've never given much thought to watering. We're dryer this year. Snow's been gone for about 3 or 4 weeks and the ground is starting to dry and even crack a bit. Temps were 44/25 last week but this week we're hitting 60's during the day and low 30's at night. Most bulbs for April are now 1-3".

We're on our second week of sunshine. Any thoughts on when and how much to water?

RE: Watering?

The soil might be starting to crack and dry at the surface, but may still be plenty moist underneath. Dig down a little if you can and recheck the moisture.
