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  
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 
in  the gardens. This idea suggested by a  reputable local bulb wholesaler.

I appreciate any experienced advice!
