When we moved into our house we had vinig roses growing. They bloomed the first 2 years and have not bloomed since ( 4 years now). I have fed them and sprayed for bugs but still no flowers. Any suggestions........

I'd prune them back. Climbing roses bloom on lateral branches that grow from upright stems. Reducing the height of the stems will prompt lateral growth and more flowers. Good luck with your roses!
