Terry first gave Tours and Talks about Earlham Park Nurseries with friend and colleague John Attoe during the mid 1980's, with plants grown at the nursery and Terry's Kodachrome 64 slides Terry and John were invited to visit gardening clubs and groups across Norfolk.


In the early 2000's using digital images Terry developed a colourful PowerPoint Presentation about Sponsorship of Roundabouts and Norwich in Bloom, Terry invited Bill Webster to co present the talk to interested gardening clubs and groups, the Presentations were very popular and with Jo and Reg Chiddick joining Terry and Bill video footage of activities were added, each Presentation generated funds that went towards purchase of Iron on transfers, red sweatshirts and fleeces to produce a "Norwich in Bloom" image as well as help fund trips away for Friends of Norwich in Bloom members to Anglia in Bloom and RHS Britain in Bloom Awards Ceremonies.


Terry's close up photography seen weekly on Antony King-Deacon's EDP Saturday gardening page attracted interest, a Presentation was asked for which Terry produced and called CLOSER TO FLOWERS.


In 2008 Terry decided to have a rest from offering Presentations and Talks after a spell of illness and then decided to spend more time with his Mum after Terry's Dad passed away - In 2017 Ros, Barry Howes sister (A friend and colleague from Earlham) asked if Terry would consider doing a Presentation to Old Catton Horticultural and Flower Arrangement Club, with Mirelle the digital Jpeg Presentation entitled "My Life, Passion and Career in Horticulture" was given on September 5th 2018.
