Rose bush no longer blooms

Zone L1K2V4 | Anonymous added on July 9, 2018 | Answered

I bought a yellow rose bush that bloomed perfectly the first year. I did not protect it from rabbits and they ate the buds before they could bloom again the next year. Now I only get small yellow white flowers that last a week or so, and the rest of the time it's just green foliage. Is it possible to get my yellow roses back without ripping out this one planting a new one?

It is too soon to give up on your rose. Roses bloom best in cool weather and may stop blooming in excessive heat. Also, their water needs go from one inch weekly to 2 inches in hot/dry//windy weather. Work in rose food as directed on container to give it the nutrients needed to bloom. If it is hot in your area, put down 3 inches of mulch to help keep moisture stay consistently moist and keep roots cool. Lastly, look very closely for evidence of bugs destroying blooms.
