There's another ghostly garden in ... what is the book ... I think it's
called Juniper Tree.
Google has failed me - it keeps returning Grimms Fairytales with a story
about a Juniper Tree.

The book I'm thinking of is children's fiction, a 11-12 yo girl - named or
nicknamed Juniper, I think, and a librarian who is really magical. And a
ghostly garden.

I'll try and find it.
