It is the Great Fountain Garden at Hampton Court Palace. Lots of pictures at Google Maps here. The conical trees are yew topiary.

It is Fatsia japonica, an evergreen plant that can be grown outdoors as well as inside. It tolerates low light levels well, but it does need cooler temperatures in winter, as well as not being at all happy in overheated rooms generally. Information on care indoors here https://homeguides.sfgate.com/grow-fatsia-japonica-indoors-70510.html. Please inspect ...

It's hard to be certain of variety because there are so many which have been created in the last few years, but whichever variety it may be, its definitely a prostrate one, evidenced by its growth habit. If you only want a low hedge, it'll be fine, but it is likely to remain up to about a foot high for the next ten years, possibly reaching 1-2 feet at ...

Yes - you have a scale infestation. The shield shaped objects attached to the branches are adult scales - there may be crawlers on the soft parts such as leaves and stems. The ants are attracted by the honeydew the scale produce, so they aren't a problem; get rid of the scale and the ants will disappear. You may be able to remove the ones on the twiggy ...

Those are aphids. Get your spray out and get rid of them quickly. I've had chilli plants and they're quite susceptible to these critters especially in dry climate and almost always after rainfall. Now you could either use a pesticide or buy a box of ladybugs or parasitic wasps and unleash them onto your plant. Also, it's best to get rid of them early on ...

Looks like white wax scale infestation - you may or may not have noticed ants on the plant as well, coming for the honeydew they produce. As the infestation progresses, you may find the plant develops sooty mould, which is also related to the presence of this pest. From what I've read, I believe in Australia you have something called 'white oil' which is a ...

The bottom one is one of the plantains and not something you want in a pot, remove it before it drops its seed everywhere. No. 1 looks like new shoots of a woody plant or shrub of some sort - is there something else growing there that's previously been cut back?

That is a very familiar tree to me, living in London UK - it looks remarkably like a London Plane tree, Platanus acerifolia. To my surprise, according to this Wiki entry https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platanus_%C3%97_acerifolia, this is a commonly used street tree in parts of Australia, including Sydney, so that seems to be what it is. The trouble with ...

I'm pretty sure that the plant is either Impatiens balsamina or a close relative. Note that I. balsamina is native to S and SE Asia, so if I'm right it's a garden escapee in your son's garden. It's grown as an annual in northern climates and considered "old fashioned" in most of the US. The common names for I. balsamina are Double Balsam (if flowers are ...

I think it's possibly Lathraea clandestina at the bud stage, although this usually appears in spring rather than autumn - how the flowers develop will confirm or deny this ID. Its common name is purple toothwort, and it's rather uncommon in ordinary gardens, usually appearing near trees or in wooded areas, though you can actually buy it at garden centres. ...

It's hard to tell the size of them from a picture, but they are rodent. Either Mice or Rats. How to Identify Rat Faeces? Rat scat is often found in large groupings. They are about the size and shape of an a single peanut Mice scat are much smaller than a single peanut. They are elongated and with a sharp end. Know that you live in the PNW, I know there ...

It looks like the images were taken on the Avenida Delfim Moreira where there are lots of Ficus. From a list of trees used as street trees in Rio we note that one native (F. tomentella) and two exotic (F. lyrata and F. elastica) species are used. The most frequently used is F. lyrata; also given that F. elastica is a more shapely tree and has firmly rounded ...

It's a Dracena. Get it in some nice potting mix with lots of drainage. The roots will take off with time. For the time being, don't fertilise. Also when you water it remember the size of the roots. Little roots can't take up a huge pots worth of water. You want the soil to have plenty of air for the roots to breath. If you water log them with too ...

That looks like either a Norfolk Island Pine (Auracaria heterophylla) or a Cook Pine (Araucaria columnaris). It is not a pine, but a conifer from either Norfolk Island or New Caledonia in the Pacific. Both trees make very pretty landscape trees; unfortunately, the one pictured appears to have been topped, although I could very well be wrong about that. In ...

Its a Bromeliad. I recently discovered these steps. I think they make it clear on how to take care of your friends new plant; Provide bright light without direct sun exposure. Maintain optimal humidity. Keep air flowing around the plants. Make sure the plants stay moist but not soggy. Provide adequate drainage. Fertilize sparingly. Bromeliad Care Start ...

Its Gazania, but they are not winter flowering, though I suppose it depends on what part of the world you are in and how cold or hot your weather gets. In the UK, these are grown mostly as half hardy annuals during summer, meaning they will not tolerate any frost. There are a large number of varieties of this plant - some are listed here https://www.rhs.org....

Marlothistella stenophylla Also called Mesembryanthemum stenophyllum or Ruschia stenophylla It is not very common. It should at some point grow a caudex. A caudex of a plant is a stem, but the term is also used to mean a rootstock and particularly a basal stem structure from which new growth arises. You might already be able to feel one forming at the ...

Yes Aphids is correct... you can control with just soap and water, or you can go to an organic like neem oil, pyrethrum, or spinosad; those will probably require less attention... use something that is available and legal in your jurisdiction.

It might be Agave desmettiana 'silver Star', but there are hundreds of variegated agaves of varying sizes - this link https://www.plantdelights.com/apps/photo-gallery/agaves_-_variegated_cultivars shows many of them, including 'Silver Star' shown lower down.
