I bought a Dutchman's pipevine to plant beside my chicken run and have it grow up the fencing. I guess I didn't think it through well enough. The plant is growing into the 1/2" hardware cloth and moving towards the direction of the sun......which is INSIDE the chicken run! The fencing is too small for pipevine swallowtails to get through! So I'll have a beautiful, full pipevine, but totally inaccessible to the swallowtails! DUH!!
Well, hopefully the few leaves that grow outside the fence will still attract them. I'm also thinking of using a crochet hook and grabbing onto the leading parts of the vine, and gently pulling them out of the run. They'll probably just go back in, but I'll give it a try. haha I feel silly.
