Can you winter plants in containers outside?

I was wondering. I have alot of outdoor plants that would normally grow in the ground in pots. Such as, evergreen trees, weeping cherrie tree, some hardy winter cactus, even blue berry bushes. The reason being, I can stick them in full sun on my cement walkway all summer long. But when I winter them in these pots...What is the best way? Will they die if not bureid in the ground?

I did bury most under a pile of leaves and in the shade behind my garage, so the sun wouldn't keep warming them up till spring. I wonder if they will survive? What are your suggestions and does anyone else do this?

Thanks alot .

Mike
