Answer: The two most common reasons for lack of bloom in roses is insufficient sunshine, or poor pruning. Roses perform best when they receive a minimum of 8-10 hours of direct sunshine each day. Climbing and sprawling roses produce flowers on new shoots. If you prune some of the canes back, you'll encourage new growth, which should develop flower buds. Roses are heavy feeders, but too much nitrogen can encourage lots of green growth, at the expense of flowers. Continue to feed with the specialized rose fertilizer, but apply only as much and as often as directed on the label. Best of luck with your rose!
