Reading back again it seems you have little experience or knowledge about plants and how they grow.
It is fine to plant woody plants like shrubs and trees in winter but not when the ground is partially or completely frozen and better still in autumn when the top of the plant is dormant but the soil is still warm and roots can grow and settle the plant ready for the big spring push.
Herbaceous plants, for the most part, die back above ground so asking any young plant that has been raised in a sheltered, covered nursery to cope with having its feet stuck in almost frozen ground and its head exposed to frosts, wind, snow and sleet for another month or two is just foolhardy. They need to be watered in and that will make them more susceptible to frozen feet or waterlogged feet if it can't drain adequately. No amount of fleece will solve that problem for you, even if the chosen plants are ideal for that aspect and soil.
Bulbs - it depends on what they are and when they are to flower. If they're spring bulbs then it's jolly late and you may well just get foliage this year and no flowers. If they're summer flowering bulbs they won't thank you for bunging them in freezing, or near freezing soil.
As said earlier, patience is a great virtue for a gardener.
