Hello, Joanne. Thank you for your question.
Our best June-bearing is available in our stores this spring. We promote our Earl May and University tested variety June-bearing type called Honeoye. The plants you get from us will be started as young plants in packs of 6. Very convenient and easy to plant compared to bareroot pieces that have a higher mortality rate. I would suggest one plant per square foot. So in your case with a 4×8 bed, a flat of 36 would be ideal (six of our 6-packs). Amend the soil with rich organic matter like our composted manure and Earl May Plant Start to promote root growth.
