|Yes, you should be able to grow blackberries and raspberries. These are large bramble plants so each one does need a lot of space, you do not want them to crowd each other. They need full sun and good air circulation. How many to plant depends on the space you have available, the specific variety you are planting, how you plan to support/trellis them, and how many berries you want to pick. You can plant both types in the same garden. Here is information on growing fruits including brambles such as these in Pennsylvania.

Enjoy those berries!
