Carnation cuttings

We haven't had any severe frosts yet but, expecting them to arrive any day soon, I've taken cuttings from carnations and pinks that might not stand cold weather.
The carnations already came from cuttings - from flowers bought for Mother's Day. I don't do anything special to them - just pull of a side shoot and pop it in compost. They're on the kitchen window sill for now to get started but once they show signs of growing, I'll move them to a cooler spot in the un-heated porch.
Hopefully winter will be mild and I'll have plants from these cuttings plus the ones left out in the garden
