Good advice from RG. Climbers have quite rigid stems compared to ramblers. If you don't support them somehow they're likely to wave around in the wind and snap at the graft union and you'll lose your lovely roses and just have basic rootstock dog roses.
Don't plant near a tree or too close to a wall as the tree will suck all the nutrients and water and a wall will suck water. Roses need fertile soil and a good water supply to do well. When you plant them, prepare the hole a bit deeper than they were in their pot and twice as wide so the roots can spread in search of nutrients and anchorage. Bury the knobbly graft union a couple of inches below the finished soil level, firm in gently with your foot and then rake smooth and water well. Mulch, if you can, with some good quality compost, well-rotted manure and keep them watered during dry spells until autumn.
Dead head each flower when it fades and that will keep them flowering till the frosts.
