It's a dahlia, they originate from Mexico and aren't hardy in the UK. They are usually dug up after the first frost has blackened the stems, you can store the tubers somewhere frost free over winter. They won't need light. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=592

Remember that alliums have a lot of foliage which looks untidy after flowering, some people try to hide them behind other plants to hide this

Does anybody know what this is, please?

Looks like the scaredy cat plant, Coleus canina. Usually planted to keep cats away because they don't like the smell of it.

Interplanting

I plant my garlic cloves 15cm/ 6inches apart, in rows 30cm/ 12inches apart. If you wanted to grow anything amongst your garlic, you'd need to leave more space between rows which would defeat the purpose of trying to save space by interplanting anyway
