Just repotted 3 container roses into hugel pots.
Hopefully this will result in lower maintenance permie roses!

I'd suggest use less wood or a much much bigger pot for that much wood. It will need the dirt to support it until that wood gets softer.

Actually, based on my observation last year with some hugel pots, they don't need a lot of soil and the seem to do better with dry, not rotted wood.

The logs wick water down to roots right above the bottom 3-4" soil layer. So the bottom roots get a slow nutrient drip in a wet aerated soil layer. The roots do great in this layer.

I actually think that after the wood rots a lot, the pots will perform less well, but we'll see in a few years.
