Strawberry plants

I have just cut back the strawberry plants and want to feed then but they are growing through a membrane which means a liquid feed. Which is the best to use?

At last my canna flowered this summer but has now finished. Do I now cut back the flowered stem? No sign of anymore flowers appearing.

Gooseberry plants

We have had a good crop of gooseberries, still a lot ripening. The bushes are growing through the nets, can they be "topped"? Difficult to remove the nets due to this growth.

Thank you. I do have a shadier spot so will plant there next year and also try extra later sowings.

My poor sweet peas, they were superb until the dratted heatwaves here in France, now drought. What few flowers there are,  are very short stemmed. I have watered them and constantly dead heading but is it too late for them to recover?

Just picking blackcurrants and have cut out the whole stem so can pick off fruit.  The top growth on the bushes is very tall right through the nets, can this be cut off now?

Just picked the cherries off my Stella, now need to prune as branches hanging over pathway. How and when to do this? The tree is about 7 years old.
