RE: question for those used to gardening in heat!

No rain here is quite awhile Ceres. Been hotter than..... for the last 10
days or so, +90. 

I just felt I was washing everything out of the soil in my hanging baskets
and assorted plantings and thought they might need a boost. 

I normally don't water much, but in the last week been daily. Come home to
drooping plants. Been trying to do some watering in the morning so they can
survive the day better, but don't have a lot of time for that. 

I have also been watering my new trees that were planted late last fall. Not
sure they had enough time to stabilize yet. Wasn't planning on fertilizing
