My roses had beautiful blooms, when they died I cut the dead blooms and put glue on the cut edges. Now they arean't blooming at all. What's wrong. I had to treat the leaves for yellow spots.

Some roses bloom only once a year and others are repeat bloomers. When you deadhead repeat bloomers they grow new flowering stems. I'd just give the rose bushes a few more weeks to show new growth. If they are repeat bloomers, they will bloom again. Yellow spots may indicate a fungal disease. Look for black spots or blotches on the stems and leaves, as well. If you find them, the disease black spot has attacked your rose bush. You can use a neem oil based product such as Rose Defense to help protect your roses from both insects and diseases. Be sure to apply according to label directions.
