I gave most of them a short dry period by not watering in June, however one 
area that got a good soaking in June to permit the digging of some adjacent 
narcissus, is flowering more uniformly than other identical plantings nearby, 
and another area that got a couple of good soakings in June is flowering 
dramatically better than the rest of that planting.

I am of the opinion that a good soaking once a month during the dry period is 
definitely desirable.

Best wishes,
