Frozen outdoor planters? No problem!

PROBLEM: You are finally ready to put together some outdoor holiday decorations and fill those planters with greenery and lights but “OH $#@!”.  You realize that you left your outdoor planters filled with soil outside and now they are frozen solid.

Frozen outdoor planter thaw with hot water

SOLUTION: You could haul them indoors and let them thaw overnight or… better yet, just bring a kettle (or pot) of water to a boil and pour over the soil for instant thawing!!  YES!!

I just did this last week and it worked great, I needed about 2 kettles of boiling water per planter since mine are pretty large.  * I would advise those with terracotta or ceramic pots not to try this method since it could likely result in shattering or cracking of your planter/pot.

Happy Decorating!
