Answer: Sounds as though you did your rose a favor by moving it. No one likes to be stepped on all the time! Blood meal is a source of nitrogen so it's good for plants. Roses are heavy feeders, though so I think you should invest in a package of rose food and feed as often and in the amounts as recommended on the fertilizer label. Roses need lots of sunshine and lots of water during the growing season. If they are not getting enough, they just won't grow and they won't flower.
Pruning in early spring encourages healthy new growth. I'd prune them back to about knee-high, leaving only the healthiest 3-5 canes and pruning the rest all the way down to the graft (swollen area on the main stem). New stems will grow from the 3-5 canes you leave and flowers will develop on the new stems.
Best wishes with your roses!
