I would put the tulips back, in their dying back state,and not remove them or cut them down. I would say the baskets are approx 10-12 inches deep. In a big square terracotta pot on the patio, I have Lilies at the bottom and Tulips on the top. The Tulips are coming to the end and the Lilies are already pushing their way through, seemingly without a problem. They did this last year too. If I do your other suggestion of planting Lilies in the same kind of baskets and swap them over, I'll have 20 Tuilp filled baskets to find somewhere for, until I swap them back over again.
That was the snag in my plan but you could put them in an out of way place?
