To force the rose bush to form more flowers, train the canes in a horizontal position. Bend them slightly, tieing loosly as they grow. This causes the canes to form more flowers instead of simply growing taller.
(If you've always tied the canes to grow straight up, give this a try, you'll be amazed at how many more flowers will grow on "Blaze"!)
