Okay, I must be completely dense, I am in the Secret Garden and have pruned the bushes, but when I try to plant the seeds, I get a message telling me that the flower beds need to be cleaned first. I have tried the trowel, that was wrong. Does anyone know what I need to do? I have the whistle, a full watering can, the trowel, seeds and the key to the gate. Colin is dressed and standing in his bedroom.

napabeth, there is one tile that cannot move. It has a number 1 on it and is locked in place. The 1 means that only one side of one tile can touch it. Tiles have a 1, or a 2, or a 3. Each tile has 5 sides. If one has a 3 on it, that means that one side of three tiles can touch the tile with a 3 on it. If it has a 2, then one side of two tiles can touch it. If it has a 1, then one side of one tile can touch it.
...You have to string them out so that the correct number of sides are touching. They turn green when they are correct. Red means the tile is being touched by the wrong number of sides from other tiles.
...Hope these instructions are clear enough. Good Luck.

Hi txlady369. Once you have 'fixed' the garden there is a red apple on the bush to left (where the green apples are). Collect it, then once you have dressed colins, given him the apple and he will go to the garden.

the card is found on the first page of the book. Have you uncovered the picture already? If not, you'll see it fall or it will simply be lying on the dresser.

Help! How do I get that Colin out of bed? I restored the garden and tried to give him an apple but he says he doesn't want to go outside!

You need to give Colin his clothes. He'll get dress then give him the apple from the secret garden (the red one) and then don't forget to take off the cloth on the picture once Colin is gone. This is where the card is.

Personally, I found it easier to work through the small numbers first.

If there is a section where there only needs to be 1 object, fill them in first.
Someone said think Minesweeper.

Take for instance a 1. Only one square of the four surrounding the number can have an object in it.

For a 3, 3 of the four need to be filled.

You need to take into account the other numbers that the squares touch.

I hope this helps a little more.

I can't find the red apple. I've completed everything and double checked with the Strategy Guide, but no red apple or green apples for that mater to be found. I found the bush on the left-hand side. I clicked on the hint and a circle went around the green bush, but that's about it. I've tried pruning the bush, troweling the bush, but nothing happens. Any ideas?

I found the problem. I was playing in the Relaxed mode. I decided to try the game in the timed mode and The Secret Garden worked fine. However, in the Relaxed mode the bush does not turn into beautiful white flowers, nor does the red apple appear.

I played in relaxed and I had no trouble getting the red apple to appear, so I don't know if you might have just had a glitch in your game. But I'm glad you got it working.
