If the roses are bareroot and dormant, and the soil is not frozen, she can plant them as soon as she receives them. If the roses are actively growing, they should not go outdoors until all threat of frost has passed - or they can be planted but will need to be protected overnight if frost does threaten. The easiest way to protect roses in the spring is by making cylinders out of chicken wire, setting them over each plant and filling in around the plant with straw, shredded leaves or mulch. Best wishes with your roses.
