    Yes you can plant them now as long as you keep them watered for the rest of the summer. Brunnera will flower next spring and Dusty Miller (Lychnis coronaria) will flower next summer).

    You can plant potted plants at any time of the year Arthur, but make sure you prepare the ground well and water them at least once a week for the rest of the summer and autumn.  It's only bare-root plants that you need to avoid - those should only be bought and planted from about November to early March.

    I have bought plants from Amazon and ebay, they were all fantastic shrubs/trees, there is a great comeback if you are not satisfied because both sites rely on good feedback. Go for it with confidence. 

    They will tell you exactly what you will get, unlike some places where you expect plants and get plugs.
