Roses grow best in full sunshine with moist soil and periodic feeding. They should be pruned in late winter or early spring to encourage new (flowering) growth. If your roses are not blooming, they're not getting adequate sunshine or they need to be pruned to encourage new growth. Some roses bloom only once a year, others bloom sporadically all summer long. I don't know what might be missing with yours but you might try feeding with a bloom booster type fertilizer. Hope it produces flowers for you!
