You should plant them immediately, if the ground isn't frozen.

I would harden them off first, 5 weeks in a greenhouse is a long time so they will have missed the worst of our weather. Outside during the day and back in at night for about a week/ 10m days. Then plant out providing ground not frozen or waterlogged.
Gently tease the roots out so they are not going round in circles from the pot. Make the planting hole at least 1.5 to 2 times the size of the pot to provide loose soil for the roots to extend into.
