I read this a long time ago, easy container gardening. Buy a bag og soil, put bag & all in container, they used a wood box. Poked holes in bag & planted. It kept in moisture after watering. You could also just use a black garbage bag too and free dirt. You can cover plastic with mulch or pretty gravel.

I do that for the potted plants I have on my northwest facing patio. Usually line the traditional shaped round pots with plastic grocery bags with the handles cut off. With them sitting on concrete getting full sunlight all day, I can't keep them watered in July and August. Works great on anything except plants like periwinkles that like it really dry. I have some handy dandy rectangular pots that I put on the brick surround on my patio and those have a reservoir in the bottom so they continuously absorb water.
Going to get my begonias tomorrow, I hope. I went last Sunday and was going to keep them in the garage for a week, but the nursery had all of their bedding plants covered over to protect them from the predicted freeze on Monday morning.
