Hello, I have purchased some erygium and astrantria from an online company.. I'm new to gardening but I fear they are diseased? The company are telling me the mottling and yellowing are normal for this time of year? Please help, thanks

You would expect both to die back completely over winter - there would be nothing green and vigorous showing above ground of either eryngium or astrantia. If still in their pots, there is a greater risk of frostbite and waterlogging. If in their final places, there is a greater risk of being eaten by soil organisms.
