I do what you first thought of - put plastic pots in the top and plant into them.  They need a daily watering in the summer, but then so do all my annual displays.  Its also easy to ring the changes then.  Lobelia and calibriocha work really well for trailing

πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŒΊπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ -hooray Yvie - the first flower is something to celebrate, it means it is settling in and growing up.  Plus its a lovely flower - nice and long and very pretty colour - so you know you have lots to look forward to.  Just imagine if, after all that time, it hadturned out to be white or pink (although I love the white and pink ones tooπŸ€”)
