do geopots need barrier underneath?

I am planning on planting a whole bunch of vegetables in geopot containers. Is it necessary to put a barrier of any sort in between the container and the mulch beds I plan to lay them on? If so, can anyone suggest something creative, decorative, or both?

RE: do geopots need barrier underneath?

No barrier is necessary. In fact, you'll miss out on some of the key benefits of fabric pots (see link) if you do use a barrier. For this reason, I make sure that all of my fabric pots are in direct contact with the soil.

Here is a link that might be useful: Why does the Smart Pot have a fabric bottom?
