why has my bush rose not flowered in two years?

United Kingdom Gb

Position is sunny. Name of the rose is Constance Spry.



Where is it growing, in the ground or in a pot and how long have you had it? Does the foliage look healthy? Has it grown at all since you first got it? Any signs of disease?

I always thought these flowered profusely and hardly ever failed very easy to grow thats one of the reasons for its popularity.
Its a shrub rose or can be a climber so how are you pruning it incorrectly?
Also CS does not like to be planted where other roses have been.
The only other thing I can think of is over feeding?
Perhaps you do not have a Constance Fry as they are so reliable? I have bought labelled plants in winter that are not quite what they are supposed to
