Is it too late to plant a Cyathea dealbata? (Silver Tree Fern)

I ordered a Cyathea dealbata (Silver Tree Fern) a while ago but it is only now being dispatched. It should be arriving in the last week of August or the first week of September. I want to plant this fern but I am wondering is it too late in the season to plant it? Should I leave it in its pot until the spring and plant it then? Thank you
Good luck anyway !
Sounds like you might be OK with it according to this (above) . Their worst enemy seems to be cold wind .
Had a Cyathea medullaris a few years ago (Black tree Fern); did fairly well until 09/10 when it succumbed to the -15C we saw for several consecutive nights .
In East Lincolnshire , normally mild but can get very cold when the Easterlies set in during winter .
I like the sound of the Black Fern, I may get that next spring.
Best of luck with the Cyathea .
