Oh you are in a muddle
Strawberries are a hardy plant and don't need protection or straw at this stage-they also need a cold spell that generates flowers for next year
Now you have yours in containers-that is fine -the only drawback is if the pot freezes and the roots freeze that will not help the plant-how big are the pots exactly?
Can you not plant them in the garden?
I hope someone can answer you olive question- I don't know-what does it say on the label ?
