Subject pretty much summed up my question. Each plant in each cup is sending out runners. Should I cut them off? Have no place to let runners start new plants. Will cutting runners off encourage blossoming...or no affect?

Mom-in-law says that cutting off the runners will encourage the plant to bloom more, which means more strawberries. Yum! If you want new plants, then next year, let them run, but cut off the line between each plant and transplant the new plant where you want it. Hope this helps!
