I have 4 roses in pots and for the past 3 years they have all flowered well, but this year one of them has no flowers not even buds, the plant is healthy and showing no signs of disease. Has anyone got an answer to this?
Is it in sunshine/shade/semi shade? Has it been moved to a different position since last year?
What compost is it in?
When was it last repotted in fresh compost?
What is the feeding regime?
In sunshine,same place as last year, has not been potted in fresh compost but none of my others have and they have all flowered well, and I have fed it on a regular basis.
I'd agree with Logan - stimulate some side shoots by pruning back a little bit - Wonky Womble finds speaking severely to plants seems to shock them into flowering so you could try that as well
Thanks Dove /Logan will give it a try by pruning, does swearing at it help?
As I'm Wonky Womble's mother, I hesitate to comment
Just found an ants nest under the pot ,could that have any bearing on it?
Not from the ants themselves although nests inside the pots could indicate dryness unless they just found the hollow bits if you used something for drainage
