These are shade plants. You will want to keep the area around them moist, but not wet. That means you will check and see if the soil is dry on top, and if it is, that is when you will water it again. It can take longer to dry during wet periods, and can dry very quickly in dry spells. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/skimmia/growing-japanese-skimmia.htm
