Answer: Potting soil is generally recommended for use in containers because it drains well, holds just the right amount of moisture to make roots happy, and is light in weight. The garden soil mix you purchased will work alright in containers, but it will be harder to keep the soil moist. If the soil dries out, it will be difficult to rewet. You can leave your plants in the soil without problem as long as you monitor the soil moisture. If the soil begins to shrink away from the sides of the container, it indicates a need for a thorough soaking. As long as you're careful about watering, your plants will be just fine.
Hope you have a bountiful harvest!
