Ah! So many possible factors at work. What they want is enough sun during their above-ground months (Aprilish to Julyish) to grow lots of healthy green foliage; enough water at that time of year (but no standing in water in the winter or living in ice!); food (whether from good underlying soil or being fed when their shoots emerge in spring). They don’t want to be cut back until their foliage withers naturally in summer. And you must select hardy varieties for your area, of course (some Narcissus are more Zone 6 than Zone 4). I wrote about non-blooming daffodils (and why) on the blog this spring: http://awaytogarden.com/when-daffodils-don%e2%80%99t-flower-well
