Orphaned, displaced, lost among a hundred locked rooms in a strange house, Mary Lennox is having a pretty rough time of it until she discovers the secret garden in the grounds of her new home. First published as a novel in 1911, Frances Hodgson Burnett's tale is a favourite for anyone who's been young, imaginative and optimistic no matter what stuffy grown-ups may think.
All Spineless Classics are printed on heavyweight paper in sharp, lightfast ink which will not fade. The Secret Garden, most popular novel by a British playwright and author Frances Hodgson Burnett  (1849 – 1924) was first published as a series in 1910. In short, if you’re looking for some uplifting entertainment for a good our of leisure time, watch one of the video versions below. Although the story-line doesn’t exactly follow the original from the book, this animated movie is a good way to introduce The Secret Garden to younger generations. The story in this version of the movie is told as a flashback memory of grown up Mary who returns home after the war. The best thing about the story is that it’s just as beneficial (if not more) for adults as it is for children and I had a great time reading it again just recently.

The building work, which included an impressive clock house at the end of the drive and landscaping by Gertrude Jekyll, cost A?24,000.
It still looks and feels like a stately home; residents use the long drive, and enter through the main door, into a grand hall with staircase and communal drawing room. There's no concierge as such, although Roger Watts, the house manager, is on hand to change light bulbs, and his wife does the flower arrangements. The Gertrude Jekyll suite, on the market for A?495,000, includes the original master bedroom and the only example of a non-Lutyens fireplace in the house – it's from the original 1760 manor. There's a walled pond garden and orderly potting sheds, extensive green houses, and a fruit and vegetable garden.
It is still possible to make out the outline of the original doorway on the outside of the wall, and there's the original plum tree where Frances Hodgson Burnett's singing robin sat.
