In heavier soils add grit and or humus matter to help with drainage.  Muscari can be left to naturalise and as such can be left undisturbed for many years. Feed during the flowering and leaf stage with something like bone meal, well rotted compost or similar.

Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to prolong flowering period.
