Thanks for your question, Pete. I wish there were an easy answer. It sounds as you’re doing things correctly, but the existence of lots of leaves and no blooms tends toward too much nitrogen and not enough potassium. Here’s an Extension article that might help: http://gardeningsolutions.ifas.ufl.edu/plants/ornamentals/roses.html Good luck!
