I have a climbing rose, at least 30years old, which produces two very strong, ten feet high shoots every year but only one flower. I don't know it's name but the flower is pink flushed yellow and the inner petals are yellow. Nicely scented too. How can I encourage it to produce more flowers?



Try bending to long shoots over more to the horizontal, which encourages flowering side shoots.

Mulch, feed with a high potash feed and train the stems along horizontal lines such as ropes, wires or fence top (depends on where it's growing). What pruning do you do?
