Roses bloom best when they get lots of sunshine (at least 6 hours a day), ample water, are fed regularly, nd are pruned at the beginning of the spring season. If you have established roses in your garden try pruning them back this spring, just as the leaf buds begin to swell on the canes. Feed every 4-6 weeks with a specially formulated rose food (in amounts as listed on the package) and be sure to water your roses once or twice a week during the growing season. Don't forget to prune off spent flowers as they begin to fade. If you prune the flowering stem down to a 5-leaflet leaf a new flowering stem will develop. Best wishes with your roses.
