Hi can anyone tell me what this plant is and can i take cuttings from it, if so how?

It's a penstemon, Martin.

Yes, you can take cuttings and this is recommended as they aren't all that hardy.  Look under propagation at the RHS penstemon page:

Hi Martin

its a penstemon. If its in a sheltered place in your garden they can survive the winter. I have 4 in different places in the front and back gardens and so far they have come back every year. To be on the safe side, take cuttings.
