My roses are growing tall spindly stalks with one or two flowers at the top - what am I doing wrong please?



I always find March to be a good pruning month Teesh.....cut out all dead and diseased wood..take out any branches which are crossing or rubbing....cut back to healthy outward facing buds....feed and mulch....Medium pruning for Hybrid Teas.......Floribunda, older stems to 4" and 25% of some of the new shoots from the lower part of the plant to encourage stems of different lengths and therefore more flowers......Oh! and welcome to Goy..:>)
