Claire, just about all you can do is keep your fingers crossed. The tree may have been 'sulking' after the shock of being planted and will hopefully soon start growing again. To check it hasn't died, scrape a bit of the bark off near the end of a branch with your thumbnail - it should be green underneath. If it is brown, move down the branch nearer the ground and try again. If you don't find any green underneath the bark anywhere on the tree then I'm afraid it will have gone to the great garden in the sky. If that's the case contact the supplier and you may get a replacement.
