It also depends how big and mature they are when you get them. If little and from small pots, then you are 100% right, including the second potting on. However, some companies sell large, mature plants in 2 - 3 litre pots, or that size from bare root digging up, with mature prices to go with them, and while these may need hardening off and getting used to the weather, wind etc. of your garden, may well be big enough to plant out at once. Play it by ear (or trowel if you prefer!) Enjoy anyway.
