We planted our Creeping Jenny about 4 years ago and it did well the first 2 years, but with the hot summer last year, eventhough we watered every day it, both creeping jenny and the ajuga started to die. We lost a lot of the plants. This year some of them came back and we have not had the heat yet like last year and we have been getting adequate rain as well as we water and the plants are already dying. Do I need anything else in the soil like lime?

Daily water during a dry spell is likely too much water. It could cause the plants to suffer root rot if the soil is not well draining.
Excess moisture can also lead to disease or fungus issues.
