Plants to take cuttings from in October

Hi , are there any particular plants that are suitable for taking stem/leaf cuttings from over the next month (or two) ? Built a little cold frame and would like to fill it up. Thanks

    Generally, it is time to take tender perennial cuttings. However your greenhouse needs to be frost free for these to overwinter successfully.

    Welcome to the forum  :)
    Obviously it depends what plants  you have available in your garden, but as @fidgetbones says it's a good time for the more tender perennials such as shrubby salvias. If you can give them a bit of extra protection (such as fleece) if the weather turns really cold that will help.
