1. The Secret Garden

by Frances Hodgson Burnett

A children’s classic. Each time I read it, I discover something new. I love the themes of the secret garden being brought back to life alongside the children who play in it.

You can also order from your independent bookshop or reserve from your local library.

2. The Explorer

by Katherine Rundell

Winner of multiple awards, this isn’t about a garden in the traditional sense of the word, but Katharine’s vivid descriptions of the wild and untamed beauty of the Amazonian rainforest make it worthy of including on this list.

You can also order from your independent bookshop or reserve from your local library.

3. The Secret of Nightingale Wood

by Lucy Strange

A brilliantly atmospheric historical mystery set in 1919. The descriptions of Hope House’s gardens and the mysterious Nightingale Wood that lies beyond it are beautiful.

You can also order from your independent bookshop or reserve from your local library.
