My local Lowes is selling both Rasberries and Blackberries right now. Can the two cross pollinate eachother? I have a small amount of space I want to devote to a couple berry vines, and I already purchased one blackberry seedling. Would I be better off planting two blackberry seedlings and trailing them up the fence next to eachother....or could I do one blackberry/one raspberry (red)?

-Thanks

Both blackberries and raspberries are self fertile so you only need one of each. Just remember, when you are planting them that the blackberry is pretty "violent" when it grows. You will need to leave a space at least 2-3 metres wide just for the blackberry. But both can grow on the same straining wires.
