Jerusalem artichokes

Hello I am wondering if anyone has tried growing jerusalum artichokes in large pots as Ive heard they can be very invasive and I dont want them eascaping and returning  each season . How many would I plant in say a 40 cm pot and what type of soil do you think grateful for any help .I hear they are very heavy croppers.
