Best soil for Bamboos in containers?

I have ordered some Bamboos to over winter ready for spring planting in large containers, one old cast iron bath + a old water tank. Phyllostachys bisseti for the tank and Phyllostachys aureosulcata f. aureocaulis for the bath, along with a Nandina domestica Magical Lemon and Lime. As much as I love JI#3, any suggestions for saving a few bob? But keeping the plants healthy and happy most important.

Cheers, John

    I think those would be better in the garden rather than in containers - especially metal ones. I have P. aureo and P nigra both in the garden as is my Nandina. Have you the space for them?
