I planted Daffodils and Tulips in an area that gets alot of water that comes from the house (no gutters) when it rains. What can I do to protect these bulbs without having to move them? Some do longer come up each year.

If you are unable to install a gutter, then the best thing to do would be to transplant the bulbs. In a location with overly wet soil the bulbs tend to rot and die out. They really require a well drained spot. I'm sorry I can't be more encouraging.
