This week on the final episode of the 2014/2015 summer autumn series:

Your local garden centre is brim filled with top South Australian autumn ideas and advice! Kim takes us for a look around the fantastic Garden Centre at Banner Mitre 10 Mount Barker.

The striking hues of yellow, red, orange and brown that light up the landscape really set autumn apart from the other seasons! Kim shows you some top trees that colour up beautifully.

We all want to stay as healthy as possible in the garden, and knowing what to do to keep our backs in good shape is so important! Kim gets some expert advice from one of Adelaide’s leading occupational therapists, Judy Ross, from SAOT Consultants and Back Centre.

To really get on top of a rodent problem you’ve got be cunning, think like them and have a few tricks up your sleeve. Thankfully Brunnings have done the hard work for you with The Big Cheese range!

With our climate we can grow a massive range of plants in SA, but our alkaline soils lock many trace elements in the ground, causing leaves on some of our favourite plants to yellow. Luckily Yates makes it easy to release these trace elements and have our plants green again in no time!

It’s the final week of our lawn laying story, and what was once brown is now green! Kim chats with the Daniel family from The Turf Farm as they reflect on their hard work and show how easy it is for you to do the same at home!

Nandinas are of the best no-nonsense plants for our gardens, and are even available locally grown. With new varieties on the market, you’re spoiled for choice!

You may be surprised to know that Carrick Hill is home to a unique antique garden tools collection. Kim takes us in for a look around and chats with Director Richard Heathcote.

All that and plenty more in the garden with Kim Syrus!
