I purchased large aluminum planter boxes. The manufacturer states: "The use of an interior container or liner is recommended to minimize contact with moisture. Consult a nursery for recommendations on a suitable liner and potting medium." I plan on using the planter boxes for seasonal flowers. Does anyone have recommendations for a "liner" to use, if one is needed at all?

I used aluminum roofing sheets to make my raised beds in Louisiana and didn't seem to have any problems going without a liner. I lined the bottom of the interior with cardboard boxes before adding the dirt, but that was to kill the grass and weeds underneath. I could very well be wrong, but aluminum seems to hold up pretty well as is.
