I'd take the cuttings now and move it now. Winter is fine for moving deciduous shrubs.Unless it's frozen ground or waterlogged.

Hmmmm. Waterlogged, Could be a problem there.

Hardwood cuttings at once, if not sooner.

If you click on 'how to' at the top of this page there's an article on hardwood cuttings. I often put them in pots because I never have a suitable bit of ground ready but I should think in the ground would be better.

My physocarpus is in some shade, maybe too much of it. It gets some die back on new shoots sometimes though overall it does OK

Laurus nobilis, bay

I think the plant being discussed here is Prunus laurocerasus, laurel. Though who knows, we haven't seen it. But light green says the prunus to me
