Why some times grafted rose does not give flower in summer but growing enormously?
I bought a grafted rose in winter which gave only one.

Wow! Welcome to the Garden Forums from Tripura!! I had to look it up! So tutupwd, I don't think it has anything to do with your rose being"grafted". I am assuming that you have a very hot growing season, and usually, if the rose receives too much of the wrong fertilizer proportion, (or it is naturally in the soil) too much Nitrogen generally means that the rose will put most of it's energy into, making new growth, i.e. green foliage canes, but few flowers. In the "NPK" standard fertilizer formula, the N stands for Nitrogen, big green foliage grower, while the P and K stand for Phosphorus and Potassium respectfully and the addition of same leads to fruit/flowers and enhanced root systems. Not meaning to talk down to you, as you are probably aware of same. But if you are fertilizing, choose one that offers higher "P-K" than "N". , and again, welcome from Tripura!! PS. Just check to see if the growth is coming from above the graft, and not below.
