MissClue: Secret of the Haunted Garden Walkthrough!

This Walk-through is courtesy of Pirate_kitty

In this post, I will be telling you exactly what to do to complete Secret of the Haunted Garden. 

So we start our adventure with Jane reading her letter to Nixie. Jane is going to go to Mrs. Danforth's Dyer Mansion to help around the house. We watch the scene play out, as Jane walks up to the front door. You knock, but suddenly the sound of digging fills the air. Curious, of course, you venture to the right and come to a gate. You watch as what looks like a Grim Reaper sees you, and then quickly disappears. 

Mrs. Danforth has answered the door, and is now inviting you inside. When you enter the house, she calls you into the kitchen. To get to the kitchen, walk forward a few steps. When you come to a double door, turn left. You talk to Mrs. Danforth and tell her about the reaper. But she thinks it was only someone in costume. 

You talk with Mrs. Danforth for a while. Finally you decide it's time to start on your chores. You ask her what she needs done. Mrs. Danforth gives you three options. You will have to complete all three of these, but she lets you choose what order you want to do them in. You can either make candy apples, gather items to put in the "Special Box", or dust.
Finding Items for the "Special Box"
Mrs. Danforth will give you a list of things to find around the house. Here are where each of the items are located.
Plush Cow & Turkey Lamp: Exit the kitchen. Go to the front door, and then turn around and walk a few steps. You should see a nightstand next to the kitchen door. Click this, open the nightstand door, and the plush cow and turkey lamp should be inside.
Here is a photo 
Books & Picture: Exit the kitchen. Walk all the way back to the front door where you came inside. Turn left 5 times, and open the doors you see. This leads to the living room. Once inside, turn all the way around. You will see a cabinet. Click this and open the doors on the left. The books should be there, and make sure to grab the picture afterwards as well.
Here is a photo.
Wedding tablecloths & Peanut Squirrels: Exit the kitchen. Take one step forward, and one step right. You will see a dresser in front of some boxes and beside a door. Click this, open the door to the dresser, and the tablecloths and squirrels should be inside.
Here is a photo.

Return to the kitchen and place all items in the box marked "Extra Special". Talk to Mrs. Danforth again to continue.

Making Caramel Apples
Mrs. Danforth has asked you to make some caramel apples. Here is how to do this.
Step forward once and click the kitchen behind Mrs. Danforth. Click the bag of Popsicle sticks or the caramel filled pot to get closer. Click the bag of Popsicle sticks, and then click again to have one in your hand. Click an apple, and then again to have one in your hand. Then click the caramel. Do these steps 8 times, and you will be finished. (Jane will help you keep count)
Return to Mrs. Danforth to continue.
Mrs. Danforth has asked you to dust, starting in the living room. Here is how to complete this task.
Exit the kitchen. To get to the living room, go to the front door where you came in. Turn to the left and enter the room in front of you. Once inside, turn to the right twice. Click the desk to get closer. Click the rag Mrs. Danforth gave you and click the desk 3 times. Once in the middle, once on the left, and once on the right. You will find a secret compartment. Grab the key.You will notice something different about the painting.
Return to Mrs. Danforth to continue.

After you have finished all three tasks, talk to Mrs. Danforth and discuss your findings. It's time to go to bed. Exit the kitchen and start up the stairs. Watch the following scene!

We see an image of a ghost cat. It goes up the stairs. Follow the cat, and walk in the path of the pawprints until you get to the end of the hall. Click on the pawprints to get closer, and you will see a secret compartment with a peacock box inside.
Jane is too tired to keep going. Go to your room (the door directly in front of the stairs) and call it a night. 
In the morning, go back to the area where the box was. But instead of grabbing it, a door will creak open to the left. As you get closer, it shuts. But you hear muffled arguing inside. Go back downstairs to tell Mrs. Danforth. As you go downstairs, when you're on your way to the kitchen, you see a ghost woman pass by and through the door. 
Speak to Mrs. Danforth (in the kitchen). She will tell you about her sister (I'm guessing the woman you saw), the cat, and the peacock box as well. 
You remember that you only dusted the desk yesterday. You decide it's a good idea to go back and dust some more. Return to the living room and dust the fireplace, as well as the picture above it. A combination will appear. This DOES NOT stay, so make sure to screenshot or use the picture below:
L4, L2, R6
Go back upstairs to the peacock box you found last night. 
peacock box
The areas circled are the areas you will have to click. Make sure your arrow is turning LEFT when you turn left, and RIGHT when you turn right.
Start at the top, on the middle flower. Click 4 times with the arrow facing left. Move to the bottom left feather and turn left twice. Then move to the right feather and turn right 6 times. The box should open. Make sure that you take all the items inside, including the letter. Return to Mrs. Danforth in the kitchen, and tell her about your findings. She asks you to go rake the garden. Exit the house by leaving through the doors in the living room (by the statue).
Approach the fountain. Get close to the fish and place a mirror in it's mouth. After this is done, turn to the right. You will see the gate that you used in the beginning to peek inside the garden. The rake is next to this gate. Store it. Turn back around and turn to the right of the fish fountain. You should find an area where you can get close to the leaves on the ground. With rake in hand, click the leaves. The word necklace should appear briefly, before the leaves blow back over.
Go past the fish fountain and into the next section of the garden. Turn to the right, and get close to the peacock statue. Place a mirror in it's mouth.
 You should see light shining on the sundial, specifically 3 and 6.
sundial light
Note that the sundial is not labeled like a clock, the numbers are in different spots. Rotate left to get to the three. If done correctly, the word "click" should be lowercase in the chat log. Rotate right (opposite way) to get to the 6.  Photos below.
The sundial will open and there will be a slot to insert your key you found earlier. It will lead you below the sundial. Click to open, and pick up the journal inside. The book is not like the books in Formula For Danger, it is not long. It may be a good idea to quickly read the 3 pages. You cannot store this book (yet).
Go back to Mrs. Danforth and discuss your findings. Go back to the garden as instructed.

You are startled by seeing the reaper in the garden once again. He is digging. Before you can get to him he vanishes. Go back inside and into the kitchen and tell Mrs. Danforth. After talking it's time to go to bed. Go up the staircase and into your bedroom. The ghost kitty is sitting on your bed, but quickly vanishes. Walk forward, turn, and click on the bed and you will go to sleep.
You awaken in the middle of the night to see a ghost - boy did that make me jump. Those eyes...so creepy!! Anyway, it is looking through the chest at the end of your bed. You hear a few noises and the ghost is gone. More noises come from downstairs. Now, if this was me, I would probably scream my head off and stay in my room. But no, you're Jane Darcy...of course you're gonna go downstairs...
On your way down, it is too dark to see. You hear a voice calling for you - they've fallen, and they need your help. Ask who is there, not the other choice. You will hear the door slam and you decide to get your flashlight. Go back into your room.
Grab the flashlight from this suitcase: 
Go outside your room, click the flashlight then the stairs. Click around the bottom left until it lights up and you can see some stairs. Continue clicking in that area until Jane finds the light switch. Go downstairs. Check the front door AND the door that leads to the garden. After seeing that both are locked, go back upstairs, into your room, and sleep.
The next morning, head downstairs to the kitchen. On your way there, you see Kit (the ghost kitty), once again. Ignore it, and go talk to Mrs. Danforth. You tell her you are going to go straighten boxes...but we all know Jane is quite the snoop.
Go back into the foyer (the room outside the kitchen). Go over to the boxes the ghost kitty was sitting on. Click the top one and store the picture and the music sheet inside. Jane says she wants to try playing Diamonds and Roses. Go into the living room, and set the sheet on the piano. Listen to the music until Jane says one of the notes is off.
Click on the left side of the piano. Once close, click again. You will find a key. Go back to Mrs. Danforth and tell her about the picture, the music, and the key. Go back upstairs to your room, unlock the chest at the foot of your bed, and take the pump (round blue item) and the red tiles. You can look at the picture, the map, and the cement slip, but you cannot store them. Don't fuss over trying to get them because at this point you cannot. But make sure you do look at them.
Go back downstairs and into the living room. You will witness a ghost lady at the desk, but you can't do anything... Go outside into the garden and go over to the sundial. Behind it is a gazebo. Go inside, rake the leaves, and pick up the tubes you see. Once again, go back inside to Mrs. Danforth. You will see the ghost lady enter the kitchen, and Inside the kitchen you will see the ghost lady again. Talk to Mrs. Danforth and she says she just found a note from her sister. After discussing the painting as well, go into the living room. After you arrow to the left, you will see a ghost paw appear on the picture next to the brown cabinet. Click the cabinet, then click again so you can get close to the picture. Click the top left corner, and a black picture will come up. Click the top right and it will pull the corner back. Click again and you will find Cassandra's painting. 
Go outside to the garden. Go up to the fountain, get close, and grab the tube you found earlier. Click the right of the fountain to place the tube. There is an open section on the tubes, this is where you put the pump you found in the chest. Click the pump and continue to do so until all the water is gone. Click the pump to store it, take your rag and dry the fountain. Go back to Mrs. Danforth and talk about everything you did. Receive crayons from Mrs. Danforth. Go back outside to the garden and look at the sundial. You realize you were facing the wrong way. With crayons in hand, go back to the fountain. Continue clicking until the red rose is complete.
This is what the completed rose should look like. 
Go back to the living room and store the music from the piano. Go back to Mrs. Danforth. Talk about your findings. You will hear a loud crash! Rush to the garden to see the reaper running away. Go to the fountain to see he dropped a match cover labeled The Grand Hotel. Rush back to Mrs. Danforth and call the taxi.
outside The Grand Hotel, click the vase to the right. It will fall
over, tripping the reaper when he comes running. You realize it's Kenny,
the gardener's little brother. He gives the necklace back. 

Watch the following scenes, and you have completed The Secret of the Haunted Garden! I hope you enjoyed this walk through. :)
