Planting Murray cypress, can I do it without watering in

I will be at my property for 10 days at the end of March. I want to plant some Murray Cypress seedlings, I can water then in by hand for those 10 days, but then will have to leave them, would not be back there till end of May. Will they survive, is there anything special I can do to help them. No one will be there to water them, and the water will not be on.

Also any good places to buy them, I am south of Asheville. I am also looking at ordering them on the web, with little money and a need for a lot of them I will be doing the small 12 inch ones that I can pick up for about $2 a piece shipped.

Thanks Chris

Mulch them. Real good.
I know they will be small, but if you don't mulch them in real good, don't bother planting them.
Hope it rains too! LOL!
That's 2 months, but it could rain.
