I've got a tayberry and it has had fruit every year since it was planted. I just cut down the dead stems and tie in the new growth. It gets the sun for alot of the day and I just leave it to its own devices. I grow a blackcurrant, blueberry and gooseberry alongside it and they provide a bit of protection from strong wind.
It could just be the extra hot weather affecting it.
