I don't know (my location is Central Europe), your temperatures are around 11°C (~51°F) I guess, that's a little bit risky, isn't it? If a bad whether strikes you suddenly and the plant is not yet established, it might just as well be it's last days... Why not wait 2 weeks, just to be sure?
Just an advice
Good luck bananing

I guess Sikkimensis, that's only logical to grow outdoors in London all year long.
