You should purchase a good quality pot with good drainage. Check the holes in the bottom of the pot.
Buy a good quality potting soil. Do not use dirt from the garden as this will compact to hard.
I recommend filling the entire container with soil. If the pot will be heavy and need to be moved you can purchase a little pot lift with wheels.
Here are a few links for you with more information.
