In general, daffodils have light water requirements during the fall and winter, heavy requirements in the March-May growing season, and no need for water while they’re dormant over the summer. Daffodils need water every week during their growing season, approximately 1 inch of moisture weekly. Apply mulch around the plants to preserve moisture. Daffodil bulbs go dormant about six weeks after blooming; however, keep up watering until their leaf tips start to turn brown. In the fall, daffodils need 1/2" or more of water every week until the ground freezes.
