Hi Johnny,
Convalaria(Lily of the Valley) are said to prefer moist, rich soil which is why they grow and spread like mad in this area where we have a clay soil. I don't think they would object to being in a pot but might not like the sandy soil too much although I suspect they'd still do ok in it. If it were me, I'd add some compost.
