Kathy, it's too late for today, but one thing that helps is to plant where 
something will cast a shade in the afternoon heat.  In the past, I've 
accomplished this with trees, the house, etc.  My seedling bed here is planted on the 
east side of the house and most are in shade by mid-afternoon.  Shade cloth 
might work in some cases.  Seedlings now growing in the country have no such 
protection and are doing well in the upper 80's. But it's not the same as the 100+ 
that they've endured in the past.  This is why cyclic rebloomers with early 
bloom date are better for me.
