I have cut some holly branches...my friend wants me to root them as they are from a loved one's garden....I don’t know if I should root them in water or with rooting compound in soil and keep them inside for the winter...

You will have much more success if you wait until it warms up to do this, but it is best to take these cuttings when they are actively growing.

The procedure is pretty straightforward, and will be the same for most plants, trees, and shrubs.
