: 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,
Thanks for the suggestions. The rose is actually a Peace rose. I think it gets enough sun, probably 6-8 hours per day, although this year has been extremely rainy and overcast, so that could be a possibility i guess. About the too much nitrogen, is there something i can do to counteract it, incase that is the problem? Like a neutralizing fertilizer? Thanks for your help!
