: I have an established rose bush that looks perfectly healthy, it has no diesease, it's grown taller throughout the spring, but i'm seeing no buds at all developing. I can't figure out why. Can someone help?

Hi Ashley,
Is your rose a Queen Elizabeth? Some Queen Elizabeths tend to make vigorous growth at the expense of flowers. This rose is known for not blooming well even after years of good treatment. Some other possibilities are it is in the shade and needs more sunlight because trees have matured around it, there is too much nitrogen in the fertilzer which causes it to grow leaves and canes at the expensive of flowers.

Hope this is helpful,
