    What to do with strawberry plants

    Yes, either Paul. I prefer straw from spring onwards though so maybe bark for now and straw when fruit is forming (keeps fruit clean, dry and slug free) :)

    Garlic and shallots replanting

    I'd not bother trying to plant if they are shooting now, I agree with @Linz . Just eat them and buy new ones in the autumn, why yours are shooting now is a mystery to me :scratch:
