PLANTING BLACKBERRIES, RASPBERRIES AND STRAWBERRIES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY IN RAISED GARDEN BEDS
I HAVE SEVERAL RASISED GARDEN BEDS (4 X 10 FEET EACH) AND ABOUT 2 FEET FROM EACH OTHER. I WOULD LIKE TO PLANT ONE IN BLACKBERRIES, ONE IN RASPBERRIES AND ONE IN STRAWBERRIES. CAN YOU SEE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS PLAN.

These three plants near each other will be fine. In some rare cases blackberries and raspberries may cross polinate but both plants will still produce the fruit they are supposed to. This cross pollination only effects the seeds of the fruit, causing them to possibly not produce the plant they are supposed to. If you're growing them for fruit, not future seed propagation it won't be a problem
