You can't be serious Gardeners boy.  I've planned the weekend around the clocks going back.  Think you are mistaken.  The old adage is spring back and autumn leap.

Hiya katydid 

i assume they are in pots.  

You will have opposing views on this but no matter what perennials you have or how hardy they are, I would always pot on at least twice before planting out in the garden soil. The bigger the plant you put out the better it will survive and thrive in your garden

Looking at it again....enlarged.... I think it will go straight into a pond basket as it is.  Untangle the roots, trim those too long, and pot up.

I have also planted/submerged in bigger container until the leaves unfurl and start to float.  Then into the pool, on a brick or two.  Again when leaves float you can lower it further into the pond.

I expect your roots are pretty small sioned...?   So I would not overpot them. ,just enough to accommodate the roots and pot on as roots fill their pots.
