    Here are 2 photos of my Persian yellow rose. So, it is mid-July, it is hot and sunny and my rose isn't blooming. It bloomed in its first year, it did poorly in its second year and didn't bloom, it had bugs last year but looked a lot like this last year, except for being buggy and didn't bloom. This year, I couldn't ask for a healthier looking plant (I took care of the bug problem). I alternate manure in one spring and bone meal in the next. Last year it got manure, this year bone meal. I fertilize with MiracleGro rose fertilizer once a month. It is in a very sunny location. Does anyone have any idea why it isn't blooming?

    There's a possibility you may be over feeding it and it's putting on growth instead of flowering. Roses only need to be fed a maximum of three times a year. Early Spring when they first start to show signs of life, again around mid May and then no later than late July as they need to slow down before resting during Autumn/ Winter dormancy. You may have to adjust these dates as I'm talking from a British climate point of view. :)
