Question: What do I do if my roses are not blooming?

Answer: If your rose bush is otherwise healthy - lots of new growth - but no flowers, the problem is either that it needs more sunshine (a minimum of 8 hours per day), or it needs less nitrogen fertilizer. Nitrogen promotes lush, green growth at the expense of flowers. Make sure your roses are getting all day sunshine and feed with a special rose formula fertilizer (in amounts and with the frequency as recommended on the package).

Best wishes with your roses!
