There are a few reasons that a rose won't bloom. The rose is a young bush, or it is in the shade and needs more full sunlight( minmum or 6 hours), there is too much nitrogen in the fertilzer which causes it to grow leaves and canes at the expensive of flowers. The bud that was used to graft with was weak or not done correctly or it may just be a once blooming variety. Using a fertilizer with the middle number very high (phosphorus) such as one for tomatoes which require fertilizer instantly, will give the rose bush an electric prod.
