What's the difference between planting them, and planting the pot ?

Subject: [pbs] wintering-over Spring bulbs in pots

I am in HZ5  in Connecticut and due to exceedingly wet weather I am  unable 
to finish planting Spring bulbs of camassia and allium. Does anyone have  
experience potting-up such bulbs (Pro-Mix) and then sinking them into the 
ground  so the bulbs are at the proper depth and covered so as to avoid 
freezing and  thawing? I plan to dig the pots out in the Spring and plant the 
in  the gardens. This idea suggested by a reputable local bulb wholesaler.
I appreciate any experienced advice!
