Food for Pollinators - Getting more from our Hanging Baskets

Last night I was at a workshop where the discussion touched on the need to provide plants for pollinators and to establish corridors. What about addressing the potential for hanging baskets that already line the main streets in many communities to include an assortment of pollinators? I recognize that these are taken down in the fall but am wondering if it's still a helpful suggestion for our climate? Thoughts?

I recognize this may be standard practice in some areas but wanted to start a discussion in the hopes of helping the practice expand.
