It's probably doing more underground than above, developing a good root system before it can make top growth. 


I agree with Pansy - remove the ties. Then clear the grass from around its base so there's a circle of bare soil with a diameter of at least a couple of feet, so the shrub isnt competing with the grass for moisture and nutrition. in February give it a feed of Fish, Blood & Bone as per the directions on the pack. It's a slow acting organic fertiliser which will provide nutrition for the  coming year. In dry spells give it a bucket full of water twice a week.  It should be fine.

Wild flowers now

To differentiate between pink and red campions - the pink has a green calyx whereas the red campion has a red calyx. 


Gorgeous to see the pics.

Comfortably ensconced at MILs, feet up by the inglenook watching recording of the fireworks and Robbie Williams best efforts while helping to eat up the leftovers 


Highly recommended
