You can but you should not plant raspberries within 300 feet of any wild blackberry bushes. Wild blackberries can carry fungus and viruses that can make your raspberries sterile. This precaution prevents your raspberries from catching the fungus. The ones you buy from the store, however, should be certified virus and fungus free.
