On our street in the summer everyone has hanging baskets. Usually filled with annuals like petunias and impatiens. This year I would like to partake, they make the street look nice! Can I make a multi-season hanging basket? Can I make one where i can reuse the plants from one year to the next? Can hanging baskets be perennial?

I have irrigation so water isn't a problem, but my house does face north so there isn't much sunlight.

A lot of "annuals" are actually perennials. Tomatoes and peppers, for instance. They just can't handle frost. Bring them in, over winter, and you have a headstart on next year. Tomatoes should do well in a hanging basket, just let them sprawl! Grow some lettuce in another one. Sweet potatoes would be good to try.
