Ang1, my advice is to take them back to Homebase. they are not suitable for gardens. just say they are "not fit for purpose" (on the basis they invade)
your golden bamboo is a rampant spreader....no doubt some will claim otherwise. ironically, bamboos are not great in pots.
I had P. Aureus here and in one season I had to dig them out (had 2) as well as digging out plants growing around them. Roots went deep and were surfacing 2 metres away.
