Blooming roses

This season our amazing rose bush produced 241 roses starting on 17 April and going through to 18 November! There are still a couple of unopened buds on the bush but given the very chilly weather I think they are dead. The April roses are definitely the best ones - large, long lasting and extremely fragrant.
What do we do to enable this abundance of flowers? Lots of pruning and a little fertiliser. And then we sit back and smell the roses!

I saved some petals from the roses that were in the room. Are these the same flowers? They still have an aroma when moved.
