Hiya nut.  I would plant out ASAP.  Not sure it would make much difference cutting the foliage back as it would be naturally dying down anyway.  

Be wary of where you plant them though..they will spread.....alarmingly so when established. ..and disrupt all other plants in the border.

I keep mine to about 70 cm and it's about 8 years old.  In the summer, when flowerimg, it adds another 40 cm or so but then it's trimmed back again.  Heathers not to your liking.?   I grow a mumber of heathers imcludimg one called Foxhollow whichnah s yellow evergreen foliage with new growth of orange??  Catmint is a shorter version of lavender but spreads a bit more.  Did you want something,to,hang over your edges or something to stand proud of them?

Is the hardy sort of gerbera?  I can keep mime outdoors ... 3 years now.....but if in doubt pot it up and keep in the GH.  Remove dead flower stems and clean off debris amd water it.
