Rotting stump question

  • Subject: Rotting stump question

Hi all,  I have a stump in  my main hosta area that has been rotting 
away for years, but I am very fond of it...think it has "character"!! 
This morning I removed most of the soft portion...the hard portion 
left also has "character".
My question:  If I leave the mostly decomposed wood at the base, 
almost a powder, mix in some soil, could I plant a hosta there and 
not have it start rotting?  Also, am I leaving prime slug habitat by 
not hauling away this rotting wood?
Thank you very much for any opions I may get...hope to get!
