I bought a rose bush. It doesn't do anything. The soil around it looks like it has small slugs or whatever. What should I do? It's brand new. Help.

How long ago did you purchase and plant the rose bush? When you say that it isn't doing anything, is it now putting on new growth? How often are you watering it? Also, it takes time for the plant to establish itself in the soil.
