Hi,
There is no great problem in planting dwarf cypresses, except that most of them are not very dwarf in the long run.
They are not fussy and if you take out a hole about twice the size of the pot it comes in and add some grit ( for drainage, if needed) and some compost (leaf mould or peat) you should not have any problem.
You have not said what the cultivar is, but many a 'dwarf' cypress ends up being axed because it outgrew it's space. Good luck anyway.
