how to get roses to bloom

Zone 90712 | Anonymous added on June 13, 2017 | Answered

I have a couple rose bushes in my flower bed that used to bloom now they arent. I'm wondering if I should cut them back I have noticed wholes in the leaves I'm assuming the bugs are eating them. I was told by the nursery to spray for bugs which I did but they told me no need to trim them down. Please advise. Thanks

Here are the article links for you that should help you out: and this link too if you have some of these rosebushes:
