Can anyone help please . All my roses are flowering away except my Ruby Wedding. There isn't even a bud . Last year it had beautiful blossoms. I have treated it the same as all my other roses?

    Is the rose growing well at the moment? Do you see spots or curling leaves. Roses can be difficult and inconsistent from year to year. As long as it's in leaf, I don't think there will be any major issues. If it's quite an old rose, you may need to be careful on how you prune it in the early spring time. Don't prune as hard down.

    The leaves seem darker than usual and although it is growing vigorously there is a slight cupping of the leaves .  Thanks for your interest Borderline.

    I think they'll still flower, but maybe a little later on. Even some slight stress like fluctuation of temperatures in certain months can delay flowering. You may have had harsh winds and some roses are more sensitive than others. If your shrub has grown quite tall,  you can cut a few branches down to the next five leaf gap. This may trigger them to form buds.
