Fargesia bamboo's tend not to run, so you bought the right ones. They just send out new canes further out every year. You can snap the new growth off with your hands or lawn mower so hardly a problem plant. be a man not a mouse Paul.
I would dig a hole, fill it with garden waste, compost, chicken pellets and the like and then put the Bamboo in it slightly lower than the current soil level, so the Bamboo stays damp and is well fed. It will reward you within a year or so by growing well.
