In a word, no. These need to be reasonably close to each other in the garden to assure pollination, since the pollen is carried by flying insects. It is good to plant them within maybe 30 feet or so (the closer the better, if you plant them next to each other be sure to allow room for them to grow and mature) and on the same side of the building, meaning not around a corner. I hope this helps.
