    a key for

    Should it be "a key for the garden"?

    I said "from the garden". Is it wrong?

    Thank you.

    It's impossible to say without more context. Please give us an entire sentence to consider.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    See above. I assume there is more than one key. If so, you are asking to be given "a" key.

    I'd use to, but for is fine. From doesn't work for me.
