Try and choose a few with a little more growth and try them straight into 3 inch pots, keep them moist but not too wet and just see how they do, you have little to lose but could gain valuable knowledge for the future.
Why not try a little experiment and re-pot a few and see how they grow in comparison to the others. Just put them outside in a light warm spot under cover and see how they do?
I`ve got all of mine outside in a plastic growhouse and those that I potted on early, approx. a month ago are, between 6 and 9 inches high with a good spread now and doing pretty well. If you have plenty it`s always worth a go, good luck.

Good advice, although I am sure we are all sensible enough to read the appropriate instructions. It is of course acceptable to allow older children to be sprayed !!!
Pick off the flower heads as often as possible and try using Verdone extra for added control, its pretty good and doesn`t kill the grass. Just be patient .
Well, that`s cheered me up no end Berghill SH,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,OOT !!!
Many thanks to everyone for taking the time to reply and their advice.
I`ll have to get some high strength Glyphosate at it ASAP, I`m determined to free myself of this monster this year, fingers crossed.
Yes I do mean Jap. Anemone, it`s a pink Koenig ? I think. EDIT. Possibly Queen Charlotte, variety not Koenig
I have tried digging it out, removing as much root as I can find, I have sprayed with weedkiller, not my preferred option, but it`s growing away like mad at present. I just want to get rid ASAP, any ideas for a permenant solution ? How deep do the roots / runners go to ?
Does anyone have a proven method of getting rid, once and for all, for this EVIL , invasive, spreading monster of a plant please !!!!

Hmm, I use Chrome, but after reading all the rave reviews for firefox, think I'll try it out.
Chrome is very intrusive being Googles browser, try Firefox for comparison, you can always go back, but I bet you don`t !
A brilliant free cleaner is CCleaner (Formerly known as Crap Cleaner). It`s free, easy to run for both temp. files, browsing history and registry keys etc. I use it on all versions of Windows without any interference and you can run it when you want to, daily, weekly or whenever you want.
Also a great back up to your anti virus is Malwarebytes, free version available and a great tool to have should you need to remove a nasty. Run it weekly in any mode for peace of mind.
Free version here,
Hope this helps.
