Hi all , what should I do to my strawbs , they still look quite healthy wondered if I should cut them back when they start to go brown . They are in containers so should I give them some feed for the winter or add some fresh compost and protect them . Got 6 runners going . the strawbs are from my x allotment  think they are on their second year , got a decent crop but not as tasty when they were in the ground I hope it's cos the weather wasn't too good early on . When I transferred them to my patio last year I wasn't too kind to them and they survived , so ... what do you think ? Thx
