i am concerned that my rose bushes have no buds on yet ive got a miniture bush and a climbin rose i had a lovely display last year and was hopin for the same this year , does it mean i may not get any flowers and if so is there anything i can do encourage them to flower.



Did you prune them at the correct time, and feed them? I'd try giving them a feed now. Use a tomato food, or buy a special rose food.

Modern miniature roses will produce several sets of buds over the year, so there is still hope for that one. Some climbers will only bloom once a year, on buds that formed the previous fall, so there may be problems with that one. Make sure that they are both getting enough sun--most roses need at least 4 hours of direct sun a day to bloom well.
