Moving Bamboo from Garden to Planter

Hi, I'm looking for advice really and any help gratefully received.

August 2016 we bought three smallish bamboo, two/three canes and about 5ft high, we planted it stright into the garden where it has really flourished. Each bamboo had produced three new canes earlier this year and they have currently begun to produce another three. It is a clump forming bamboo and I love it but we now wish to move them into several large planters in order to control them (and also because we want to put a pergola where they currently are. So my question is this, is there a better time of year to do this or any advice to help with the move and hopefully stop them going into shock.            I would hate to lose them.
