Mother said it flowered 1 year when they bough it, ever since nothing...... the two plants are roughly 18 years old. I don't get it. I DO notice little holes on leaves, nothing stating an epidemic that is though. Love to see them bloom someday again...Advice Oh Rose Bush Gods? I praying! Haha

They look very small for 18 years old. Have they been pruned?

Is it a once bloomer ? Do you prune it every spring ?
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

P
She has pruned it very occasionally. Since the last time or how often, I have no idea.

If it is a once bloomer and you prune it in the spring it will never bloom. However the bushes seem very small (most once bloomers are large), any idea what kind of rose they are?

Once bloomer means a rose that just puts on one big display of blooms in the spring or early summer as opposed to repeat bloomers that keep cranking out flowers throughout the warm months. (One flower per lifetime really would be a bummer!)

Any idea where your mother got these roses? The more you can tell us about them the more likely someone here will be able to help.

Perhaps all those other plants and weeds are taking away valuable nutrition? Can you pull them out just leaving the Rose? Do you fertilize the Rose?

I trim my once blooming roses as soon as I see leaf buds and they always bloom and grow vigorously. Perhaps weeding is needed and fertilizer.

Maybe. But if weeds prevented roses from blooming, I'd never see a flower around here.

Full sun of course I'll replant it in the spring, very odd
