variegated laurel

I have three pieces of variegated laurel which has been in water for 3 months(in a vase and water changed frequently).
The laurel now has lots of long, stringy roots.  Can I plant the laurel straight into the garden or do I need to put them in pots in compost to establish more.
Many thanks for all advice.

    I would pot them on into a mix of garden soil and compost, into 6 inch pots, then when the roots fill the pots, plant them out.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
