    My established rambler rose received a severe renovation after it blew down: As a result it is healthy and has produced many new long stems but no sign of any flowers: Please advise:,,,, do I cut the new growth back?

    You didn't say how long ago the rose was blown down and renovated, but if it was this growing season, just be patient. Roses produce blooms after the plant has enough foliage to feed blossom set. Roses aren't too smart--they think that producing flowers will lead to baby roses, even if they are hybrids!
    The only reason to prune now is if any of the canes are in the way of a path, or grabbing you as you go by.
