My sister recently received a rooted cutting from an established rose bush which grows happily near a lighthouse in British Columbia Canada. She is wondering how and when to plant it. As my climate in southwestern Ontario differs greatly from hers, I didn't know what to tell her. Does she need to wait till spring to plant it outdoors? Should she plant it and cover the canes till spring? Or should she plant it in a container in the house and move it out when there is more sunlight?

The answer depends on where in BC she lives.
If temps dip below freezing, I'd keep it in the house under a grow light until danger of frost has passed. Spraying the rose with water at the base every day will stave off spider mites, who seem to like house living. This will also help the rose with the dry climate of Winter.

On the mild coast, she could plant it now. If they're getting the rain we are, she might want to wait until it slows down. Planting in mud isn't much fun.

A new own root rose will do better if it is transfered to a larger pot 2-5 gallons and allowed to grow in the pot for the first season. She can sink it into the ground or leave it on the porch. Then in the Fall plant the rose without the pot.

Good Luck

how do I plant a grafted climber?
do I need to be concerned about the graft?
does the graft interfer with the quailty of the rose?

The climber is budded onto an under stock to give it more vigor. If you garden in a warm area then you can plant the graft above the ground but if your climate has a cold winter, then it is better to plant the graft below the ground.

If you have a grafted rose: Near the bottom of your bush there should be a graft union: where your variety has been grafted onto a "starter rose" stump.  If  your shoots are coming up from below the union then they are not from the variety type that you purchased, but rather from the mother stump. Cut the shoots off. They will steal the energy from the shoots that you desire if you don't and allow the Mother plant to proliferate and not the variety shoots that youu purchased.

    If the shoots are from aboive the graft union then keep them and care/prune as usual in the Spring. See prunning.
