These plants are currently on a building site where a bungalow is being demolished so could be from anywhere.

Those are burrs. Burrs are full of seed. Cut them down and dispose entire plant. ASAP
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

The top one is Datura stramonium, thornapple or jimson weed. The lower one looks like Ricinus communis, castor bean, but I don't know why that would be there. Both would be poisonous.

Thank you as this was someone's garden I guess they could have planted anything. Either way they need removing. Smiling
