You place the cutting in the rooting soil in the same orientation it was on the plant, so the end pointing up (or away from the roots) is still pointing up. Winter is actually the best time to take holly cuttings. You can root and grow them indoors until the spring, or in a warm climate you can root them directly in the ground:
