Is there any problem with planting shrubs (Fatsia) in containers of 100% Miracle-Gro or Sta-Green Tree & Shrub garden soil with fertilizer? The instructions call for mixing it with surrounding soil in a landscape, but nothing regarding plants in pots.

“Garden Soil” is just dirt.  “Potting soil”, on the other hand,  is sterilized by heat to kill any seeds and diseases and is usually made from peat moss and other additives like vermiculite and perlite to lighten and improve it.  The two are NOT the same thing.  Given a choice, I’ll always choose “Potting Soil”, for containers and use “Garden Dirt’ as an additive for in-ground gardens if I use it at all.
