You are correct, they would go right through chicken wire. I use 1/2" 
hardware cloth
that is 30" high and cut it in half.  The length I use depends on the pot 
size.......22,24 or even 30 inches. I bend the bottom but do not necessarily 
enclose the bottom and then only if there is little depth due to rock or 
roots.. That is how I do it.
