I live in south east texas, we grow blueberries very well, your soil has to be on acid side. And I fertilize with a acid fertilizer every fall and spring. Blackberries do good here also, I grow brazo's, The thornless one's did not grow well and finially died. Raspberries is a lost cause unless you live in pan handle. Amarillo area. Blackberries are heavy feeders, after bearing you have to prune back to 6 inches to ground. I use lots of mulch and manure. Good luck
HI just planted Blueberrys and Raspberrys last spring and have Blackberrys growing quite well. The only concern i have will all but the Blueberrys would be to have a plan to keep them contained they will all spread Arapaho
is the Blackberry i like big berrys and vines are loaded, Heritage is the red raspberry and we even got a few this year from them, i can't remember the black raspberry kind would have to look it up.. The only thing i did not like was the black raspberry grew along the ground instead of up so the ran about 6 foot am talking to gurney about them now to see what can be done. I am located in TN by KY lake so should be about same conditions as you i would thing
