How to clean a smelly flower pot?

I have a large ceramic flower pot outside that is filled with beautiful ivy vines. This year it is holding water and beginning to smell like rotten vegetation. Maybe the hole in the bottom has clogged up. It is too heavy to lift. How can I get the ivy out so I can clean it out without killing the ivy? Is there anything - like lime - that I could sprinkle in it?
