Question on pot culture vs in-ground culture of BrazelBerries® raspberry & blueberry Varieties:

I just potted 2 Rubus idaeus 'NR7', Dwarf Thornless Raspberry, Raspberry Shortcake™ and have 9 left to plant. I only have 5 pots left. Since I started, I also landed:

4 Vaccinium corymbosum ‘ZF06-043’ blueberry, Peach Sorbet™

8 Vaccinium corymbosum ‘ZF06-179’ blueberry, Jelly Bean™

So, I was going to put some of both raspberries and blueberries in pots, and some in ground. Given that raspberries tend to be bigger spreaders than blueberries, and at least in our hot summers, plants tend to do better in the ground than in pots, would it make more sense to pot the raspberries and use the blueberries in ground? I lean a little that way just to keep raspberries in check. However, if online photos can be believed, both look great in pots. Sigh...
Thoughts?

Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.
