    I would dead head all over.The plant is putting energy into producing seed so has given up on flowers.Have you fed the plant?

    Clip off all the old blooms, give it a good water and a tomato feed. I would also put it somewhere partly shaded until it recovers a bit.

    Do you deadhead the old flowers?  I think leaving them may cause your plant to put its energy into setting seed.  If you remove them the plant might make new ones.

    I don't grow this plant, just guessing based on typical plant behaviour. 

    Regarding the watering, a good drench is generally better than little and often.  Container grown plants need more watering than ones planted in the ground, especially in hot weather.
