Indeed, as Niucutlet says, plant them out in autumn, when the soil is still warm, they will overwinter fine and return to delight you next year. Aquillegias are very promiscuous, and freely cross with each other, so that often you get a garden full of greyish pink ones, but I have found that some of the modern hybrids do keep their colour and don't crosspollinate with their neighbours - you will have to wait and see what yours do. I have also found a couple of double ones in my garden this year, very strange as I don't usually grow double flowers because the bees can't get any use of them.. However, those that have arrived themselves are very lovely so I shall let them be.
