Mary talked with Martha about Dickon. Then, Martha asked Mary where she was going to plant the seeds that Dickon had brought. Mary didn't know as she hadn't asked anyone yet for permission.
Mr. Craven asked her if she wanted to have a nanny or a governess and she said she didn't want either. Her uncle said that was what Martha's mother had said to him. In the end of the conversation, Mary asked if she could have a little bit of earth, to plant her seeds, and Mr. Craven said she could do whatever she wanted.
Mary was excited. She could have her Secret Garden.
