I have had my tea roses for many, many years. They have always bloomed one bloom to one stem. This year they are blooming 3-4 blooms to one stem. Why?

Lucky you! Are they really tea roses or are they hybrid teas? A name or picture would help too.

The more mature the cane that they come from, the more blooms they will produce in bunches.

If you let your canes mature for years, they will produce more flowers per cane (stem).
