I've installed a galvanised metal grid walkway above and along the main vine. The grid structure means air and light can get through, and the leaves will grow around it. The ground stakes have been in place for several months already so I wouldn't have to damage any roots hammering them in. Now I can get to weeds, rogue tertiaries and spray the interior of the plant when it gets too big to access from the edge. I'll also be able to keep an eye on the health of the main vine and the interior of the plant in general. Getting access like this to the heart of the plant, without damaging leaves and compacting soil, has always been a problem so I hope this will be the remedy.
