no buds on roses

I've planted three bush roses Casanova I pruned them while they were in their pots about a month back  BUT none of them have flower buds .is their any fertilizer I can use to promote budding?. I gave them FBB when i put them in and mulched with horse manure compost.

    Some roses have been slow this year, especially late pruned roses. I wouldn't worry too much just yet, they're establishing so be patient. Keep them well watered for now, roses take a year to really get going and prune early next year, February I find is best and feed at the same time.

    David Austin does a great rose fertilizer which I always use about twice a year.

    Primrosecottage have the shoots come to a blind end, sometimes this happens for

    no reason, just cut it where the next leaf is & it will start growing again. If you have put rose food on you could use a foliage feed like a high potash.
