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.
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.
