It is undoubtedly an autobiographical novel. Burnett was highly influenced by the ideas of the New Thought, theosophy, and Christian Science movements. At the turn of the 20th century these ideas were gaining rapid popularity. "The Secret Garden" is also highly influenced by the profound positive thinking. The novel had been written shortly after Burnett went back to England in 1898. She lived in a rented country house and lost herself in her passion of gardening. She had a walled rose garden. That garden was kind of an outdoor workroom for the author. The better part of the novel was written in that garden.
