James..I know exactly what you mean, ours are always three weeks behind most peoples because of our climate, so now you want to get bedding plants in or tubs sorted and planted.
What I do, and always have, is to pick the whole lot out of the tubs and put in old compost sacks or bin liners and the ones in the garden I gently fold over and tie round. They still multiply and come up just well next year and I think it aids the rotting down process.
I will get jumped on for advising that, but it works for me and frees up the soil space.
