Can I still take successful cuttings from tender plants and shrubs.



Yes, it is still worth doing. If you can provide some bottomheat such as one of those electric windowsill propagators you'll have better results. Use a gritty compost and remember to push the compost around the base of the cutting.

If it's possible to make or buy a small cold frame, this may give success with hardy plants.
