It is fine to do it now..

The months of September to April are the traditional planting months and are in fact a better time to plant shrubs than the summer months

You are fine to plant now and if you have it, i would recommend adding some well rotted farmyard manure to the base of the planting holes

Thank you for that. Yes there is no shortage of manure around here and will do. I was going to plant the lavender with sand as ground is wet. The lavander will be at the front and the hydranga behind. Border is about 20-30ft long. All these plants are from this years cuttings and lav from this years seed. They were very easy to propogate.

Yes. Good idea to add the sand to your soil. Mix with with farm yard manure as manure can help improve drainage too.
