If sowing when it is hot, cover with hession or a couple of layers of old shadecloth. The idea is to keep the soil moist and not let it dry out at all

A good idea to do this anytime. And to do it when transplanting seedlings especially when the seedlings are bare rooted (no soil around them). I have a 2m x 2m x .4m high frame with 30% shade cloth.
