If they're summer fruiting, then cut back the ones that have borne fruit and leave the rest - tying them in to some support to stop them thrashing around in the winter winds. Then give them a good mulch around with well rotted farm yard manure or compost , keeping it away from touching the stalks.
They will produce suckers, but as they're in their first year it's early days yet.
Patience is something we gardeners have to learn
