I planted this lemon tree one month ago, and it isn't growing, this lemon was there since we bought it. Neither anything is happening nor it is growing

You planted your lemon tree too deep in the ground. When a tree is planted too deep in the ground, it can't transpire gases correctly. Here's what you can do to get your lemon tree growing again. Remove the top inch or two of soil and expose the root flair. The root flair is the top of the swollen root and that needs to be above the soil line. I put an old white tie to show how deep this tree was planted and how it look after removing the soil. The last photo is another tree planted too deep that was fixed like above. Good luck

NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

One month is not a long time. Plants acclimate to new surroundings and grow roots before they grow new leaves. Your tree looks good but you need to be patient. Keep the soil damp.
