If you in southern Missouri zone 6b you be okay but north part to cold for blackberries problem is short frost free days they freeze before ripen in zone 5a and 5b.

Blackberries like 6.5 ph soil acid Blueberries like 4.5 to 5.5 acid ph the range they pick up water best in heat summer if always cool at your location blues take higher ph. because lower water demand. Leafs cool by water evaporation.

If you find your zone and add to information it show on your Title after nic.

Here is a link that might be useful: knowing your zone
