Tammy, it would take a soil test to know if your soil needed anything added...but alot of times when you transplant a fruit bearing plant it will take a slight set-back from transplant shock, if it has new shoots coming out, and since you had flowering then I believe they will be ok. You did good by "mulching", but since you get so much rain, keep the mulch pulled back from the main part of the plant about couple inches. This will pervent rotting. I put out this past spring 23 blackberrys that was given to me just for digging up. I dug a trench about 10 inches deep, put handful of lime, some compost, a little bone meal & cottonseed meal in the bottom of trench, then an inch layer of horse manure (composted) then the roots, water good, anf left them along and so far they looking great I should have blackberries next year. If you think you need to add something, then make a small trench on both sides about 2 inches deep and 6 inches away from the berries, then add a handful of rock phosphate, some bone meal or cottonseed meal, this will strengthen the root system & improves flowering which means more fruit
good luck Tammy
