Around here (San Francisco Bay Area) blackberries grow wild. The problem is not how to grow them, but how to keep them under control.
The 'tame' varieties may no be quite so rampant, but if I was to try any, I would set up a defensible space around them so I could grub out spreading roots, and a trellis system so I could prune them pretty hard so they stay where they belong.
