    Can you give a bit more info please. When you say baby rowan, what size is it and was it grown from seed, transplanted bare-root or bought in a pot? Do the leaves look healthy? Its common for trees to 'sulk' a bit after being transplanted if their root has been disturbed or if they've been allowed to get root bound in a pot. It can be that they're concentrating on making roots rather than waste energy making top growth that the root can't support.

    Ready to plant as in it came in a pot? I can't see much from the picture sorry. Does it have leaves at all?

    I bought a little Rowan  tree from Morrison, only about 12” tall,  £1,99 !
    I planted it in the ground and it took ages to make a start, it did suddenly take off though and is now about 7’ tall.
    I think they probably thrive on neglect, they grow wild on the Moor, little or no soil, between rock walls, no one feeds them. 
    Just plant it out and wait, it will need watering often until it’s established.

    I found the one that I've planted in my front garden growing out of the top of a rotted gatepost in about an inch of soil. It's about two metres tall now.

    Are you sure it’s a Rowan, they don’t grow from bulbs?
